Justice Ginsburg wants all-female Supreme Court

In a candid conversation on C-SPAN, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared her thoughts on “Women, Gender Discrimination and the Courts” at the University of Colorado Law School and said she thought there should be an all-female court.

Ginsberg reflected on Justice Sandra Day O’Connor being the lone female voice on the court for 12 years. When Ginsberg was appointed, the National Association of Women Judges held a reception where they presented her with a t-shirt that read “I’m Ruth, not Sandra”, as well as one to O’Connor that read “I’m Sandra, not Ruth”. Ginsberg noted that lawyers would confuse them even though they didn’t look alike, or speak alike.

During the period of time when she was the only female on the bench, she said it was lonely. “It was the wrong perception for people to see a little woman and eight large men,” Ginsberg said.

“So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough? And I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that,” said Ginsberg.
