Flashback: Justice Ginsburg on an All-Women Supreme Court

It's not Thursday, but a throwback is nevertheless appropriate today.

Justice Ginsburg: We Need an All-Female Supreme Court (Nov. 2012):

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when all nine justices are female.

“So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? 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,” she said.

Ginsburg made the remark at the 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference that was held at the University of Colorado in Boulder in October.

And from Oct. 2010, Justice Ginsburg Says Nine Women on Supreme Court Would be Enough
