Ruth Bader Ginsburg shares #MeToo moment about Cornell instructor

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaks with Nina Totenberg during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 21 2018 in Park City Utah

She said she has seen Kate McKinnon's Ruth Bader Ginsburg character on "Saturday Night Live".

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has spent a lifetime fighting for gender equality, but in an interview over the weekend the 84-year-old supreme court justice made clear she sees the fight as unfinished business.

Ginsburg spoke with NPR's Nina Totenberg on Sunday about the #MeToo movement, her career as a women's rights advocate and her future on the high court. Ginsburg was at the film festival in Park City, Utah, for the premiere of a documentary about her life called RBG.

Ginsburg, who will turn 85 in March, just hired, an indication that she has no intention of retiring anytime soon. He gave her what he said was a practice exam. She even divulged a story of her own about how an undergraduate professor at Cornell University once provided her a practice exam with all of the test answers, and expected something in return. Ginsburg said she's not afraid.

"She said that she did not ignore the incident with her college instructor, but instead confronted him at his office later and said, "'How dare you? "And that was the end of that".


Pennsylvania court: congressional map unconstitutionally gerrymandered
Monday's decision could encourage similar state-court challenges elsewhere, said Li, the redistricting expert. The court said in its order that that race will proceed under the old congressional map.

"And I would like to say 'Gins-burn!' sometimes to my colleagues", she said. For so long women were silent, thinking there was nothing they could do about it.

"Well, he's just as good-looking" as he used to be, Ginsburg said, drawing laughs. SNL had one famous bit after President Donald Trump's inauguration in which McKinnon, as Ginsburg, joked that she now had to "stay alive" to ensure the current administration didn't get anymore justice nominations.

Another standout moment Ginsburg cited during her hour-long talk took place when she joined Rutgers University School of Law as a professor in 1963.

Looking for news you can trust? "When I see women appearing everywhere, I'm less anxious about backlash than I was 20 years ago", Ginsburg added. She said, "the remarkable thing about Marty is that he cared that I had a brain".

"The first time I heard then-Professor Scalia speak, I disagreed with a good deal of what he said, but I was captivated with the way he said it. ..."
