The Place of Women on the Supreme Court.

Gearing up for the Sotomayor confirmation and all that she's going to have to endure when it comes to defending that statement about being a "wise Latina woman..." the NY Times had a fantastic article/interview about Ginsburg's take on being the only woman on the Supreme Court and how she's looking forward to ending that streak. I particularly loved this response she gave in regards to working with men over the years:

I always thought that there was nothing an antifeminist would want more than to have women only in women’s organizations, in their own little corner empathizing with each other and not touching a man’s world. If you’re going to change things, you have to be with the people who hold the levers.
