A Conversation with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
As part of the Festival's signature event, the Afternoon of Conversation, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sits down with Jeffrey Rosen. Rosen is the President and CEO of the National Constitution Center. Ginsburg grew up in an era when women struggled to join the workforce and weren't expected to hold significant posts. When she entered Harvard Law School, she says there were 9 women and over 500 men. In this discussion, she talks about the difficulties of being a woman in a career dominated by men. She's introduced by another trailblazer, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
