Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Shares Her #MeToo Story: "Every Woman Of My Vintage Knows What Sexual Harassment Is"

Even the most powerful woman in the country has faced sexual harassment. Over the weekend, Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared her own #MeToo experience to an audience at the Sundance Film Festival. During a panel with NPR's Nina Totenberg, the 84-year-old powerhouse revealed that the incident took place in the 1950s while she was [...] Even the most powerful woman in the country has faced sexual harassment. Over the weekend, Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared her own #MeToo experience to an audience at the Sundance Film Festival. During a panel with NPR's Nina Totenberg, the 84-year-old powerhouse revealed that the incident took place in the 1950s while she was a student at Cornell University. Related: Laverne Cox Becomes First Trans Cosmo Covergirl!! The legal expert shared: "Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn't have a name for it. The attitude toward sexual harassment was simply, get past it. Boys will be boys." The Supreme Court justice continued by explaining that it was an instructor hired by the Ivy League institution that tried to take advantage of her. Bader Ginsburg added: "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. The next day, the test is the practice exam, and I knew exactly what he wanted in return." Being the strong woman we know and love, Ruth ripped the educator a new one. She recalled: "I went to his office and I said, 'How dare you?' How dare you?'" Sadly, this wasn't the only instance of sexism which Ruth dealt with over her lengthy career. While a young professor at Rutger's Law School, Bader Ginsburg asked the dean about the salary of a male colleague, as they had the same professional experience. Per the feminist icon, her employer replied: "'Ruth, he has a wife and two children to support. You have a husband with a good paying job in New York.'" How awful. Thankfully, these unsavory experiences didn't deter her from fighting the good fight. In fact, Ruth went on to co-found the ACLU's Women's Rights Project AND has regularly petitioned for other marginalized groups. On the revolutionary #MeToo Movement, the New York native praised: "I think it's about time. For so long, women were silent thinking there was nothing you do about it, but now the law is on the side of women, or men, who encounter harassment and that's a good thing." Hear! Hear!

Here’s what the 35-year-old On The Basis Of Sex actress had to say… On meeting Ruth Bader Ginsburg: “It was quite strange meeting her because I had read so many books about her, and felt like I had an encyclopedic knowledge of her. It was interesting to associate the person who I thought Ruth was—with everything that I had read—to the person who I actually met. I was just struck by her humanity.” On what she admires most about Ruth: “Her humour and her commitment to her beliefs. I feel like she’s someone who never wavered from that, and has been quite singular in many ways. And I think in times where we don’t have that many public figures we can look up to, Ruth is very unique in that way. We can admire her.” On how the film resonates with the current female-focused movements: “It was incredible when we were shooting the film; it was chiming with everything that was happening in the #MeToo movement. And what we were finding, with the current revolution that we’re in, is that the momentous things happening are, in many ways, things that Ruth had been arguing for years and years and years. On the fight for equality: “Ginsburg is arguing that by giving women equality with men, you also make lives better for men. Both sexes need to have that equality, and they will both be happier for it. Putting people into these gender stereotypes is the thing that limits everyone, ultimately.” For more from Felicity, visit SMagazineOfficial.com......»»
