Last month, legal affairs writer Stephanie Francis Ward sat down at the high court with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to talk about the justice’s legal career and family life.
Ginsburg talked about her legal advocacy and her rise to the highest court in the land; about her marriage to her late husband, Martin; and about the changes that women have seen in law and parenthood.
In this recording, Ginsburg talks about the gender discrimination cases she handled as a lawyer and how the country’s views on equality have changed over the past 30 years.
