Ruth Bader Ginsburg Wants Nine Women On The Supreme Court

"People ask me 'When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court' and my answer is: 'When there are nine.'"

U.S. Supreme Court justice and internet sensation Ruth Bader Ginsburg stopped by Georgetown University earlier this week, where she spoke about the sexism she faced early on in her career.

"When I was going to college, the law was not a welcoming profession for women," she said.

Most judges in the Southern District wouldn't hire women, said Ginsburg, and women were strictly forbidden in the U.S. Attorney's office's criminal division.

"People ask me sometimes, when will there be enough women on the Court?" says the Supreme Court Justice.

"And my answer is: When there are nine"

And it's not the first time she's expressed this sentiment:

She also said that if she could have "any talent that God could give me" she would be a "great diva."

There's still time!
