During a Sundance Cinema Talks conversation with Nina Totenberg, Ginsburg said that her health is "very good" and that she still enjoys the work.
Justice Ginsburg isn't anxious that the #MeToo movement might cause a backlash against women.
"For so long women were silent", Ginsburg told listeners.
When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg began her legal crusade, women were treated differently than men by law. She went on to give a personal example from her early life: "I am taking a chemistry course at Cornell and my instructor said, because I was uncertain about my ability, he said 'I'll give you a practice exam.' So he gave me a practice exam". He offered her a practice exam and she took it, she told the audience.
"The next day on the test - the test is the practice exam", she said.
It's worth reading (or watching) the whole thing, including for Ginsburg's own tales of sexual harassment-"How dare you?" "I went to his office and I said, 'How dare you?' How dare you?'" she recalled.
That was the same year the Equal Pay Act passed and "that was the answer I got", remarked Justice Ginsburg.
Gov. Cuomo Proposes Study of Recreational Marijuana Legalization
NY1 will carry the governor's budget address live starting at 1 p.m., along with analysis by political anchor Errol Louis. It comes as at least nine states and Washington D.C. have legalized small amounts of marijuana for recreational use.
When Ginsburg began teaching at Rutgers Law School in 1964 she said that she quickly realized she was being treated differently than her male colleagues. She picked up and said, "This child has two parents".
Ginsburg also recounted the story of when Columbia Law School issued layoff notices to 25 women in the maintenance department but didn't lay off any men.
"I liked the actress who portrayed me", she added.
She has law clerks on staff through the court's 2020 term. "And I would like to say 'Gins-Burn!' sometimes to my colleagues".
"It's about time", Ginsburg said.
During the interview, Ginsburg also discussed her relatable spunk that has gained her popularity among young liberals and landed her a doppelgänger on Saturday Night Live.
At one point in the film, West and Cohen sit Ginsburg down to watch clips of McKinnon, so she can judge her impression. "As long as I can do the job full-steam, I will be here".
