Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated Tuesday that sexism used to be a “major, major factor” in the end result of the 2016 presidential election.
“I have no doubt that it did,” she stated, when requested if sexism performed a function in the 2016 presidential election. “There’s so many things that might have been decisive, but that was a major, major factor I think.”
Speaking all the way through an interview with CBS’ Charlie Rose Tuesday evening, Ginsburg stated she’s “hopeful” concerning the rising choice of girls in Congress, noting that there have been simply a handful of girls in Congress when she started her Supreme Court.
“The more women that are out there doing things and the more people see that women are not all alike — we come in all sizes and shapes. So that, to me, to see the entrance of women into places where they were not there before is a hopeful sign,” she stated.
