  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg likes how she's portrayed on 'SNL'

The Supreme Court justice reportedly hired a full lineup of law clerks that will last at least through the 2020 term.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg speaks during a sit-down with NPR's Nina Totenberg at the the Cinema Cafe in Utah.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg praised the #MeToo movement and shared a personal experience of sexual harassment in a conversation at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. "So far it's been great", she said. The next day she discovered that the practice exam was, in fact, the real test. Ginsburg didn't go into too many specifics, but noted that she "knew exactly what he wanted in return" for the help he gave her. "And that was the end of that".

A lot has changed since then, Ginsburg explained, as she shared her final thoughts on the #MeToo movement that's sweeping the nation.

She had no legal options to strike back at the teacher so Ginsburg stormed into his office saying, "How dare you?"

"For so long women were silent", Ginsburg told listeners. "Now the law is on the side of the women and men who encounter harassment, and that's a good thing". "This was not considered anything you could do anything about, that the law could do anything about", Ginsburg told Totenberg.




After a temporary injunction was issued against Columbia, it "decided they didn't really have to lay off anyone", she said. "You have a husband with a good paying job in NY", the dean responded.

When Totenberg asked about the justice's health at 84 years old, Ginsburg said it was "very good", to a round of applause. The women's rights activist did not disappoint, doling out sage advice and laugh-out-loud amusing anecdotes in her gravelly, deliberate way of speaking. 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.

In response to the dean's remarks, a group of women employed at Rutgers worked together to file an Equal Pay Act complaint, which the university later settled. "When I see women appearing every place in numbers I'm less anxious about backlash than I might have been 20 years ago".

She experienced another round of gender disparity when she was a young mother. "Please alternate calls. It's his father's turn", she said. "I think yesterday was proof that it will continue".

Ginsburg attended Sundance to celebrate the debut of the "RBG" documentary about her career.
