A great way to persuade men to see things from her point of view, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently told a Yale University audience, was to have them think about how they’d like things to be for their daughters.
Ginsburg spoke as part of the school’s Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights, the Boston Globe reports.
‘That was one of my favorite techniques,’’ said Ginsburg, noting that the granddaughters of the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist had an effect on him.
‘‘I would try to get men to think not so much about what good husbands or fathers they had been, but how do they want the world to be for their daughters,” she said.
