Would you hire Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

In 1959, RBG graduated from Columbia Law at the top of her class, but she could barely get a job. No one wanted to hire a woman lawyer.

In 1963, RBG became the second woman to teach full-time at Rutgers School of Law. She didn’t get paid as much as the men on the faculty. As the dean explained, “it was only fair to pay me modestly because my husband had a very good job,” she remembers.

In 1993, President Bill Clinton nominated RBG to be an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court.

We read about RBG in the book Notorious RBG—The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik.
