Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

A fascinating, thought-provoking exchange... Josephson's respect and appreciation for Ginsburg's strength, independence and intelligence fuel his thoughtful questions and she is generous with her responses... Air this.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's life is a paradigm of the American immigrant experience. In one generation, she rose from the daughter of Jewish immigrants to a seat on the Supreme Court. Born in 1933, she credits much of her early success to the influence of her mother, who gave her two pieces of advice: always be a lady, and be independent.

Justice Ginsburg tells Larry Josephson the surprising story that when she graduated at the top of her class from Columbia Law School in 1959, "no one would hire me because I was a woman, a mother and a Jew."

This conversation offers a rare personal look into the life of sitting Justice of the Supreme Court, her struggles against gender discrimination, Antisemitism and severe illness. Justice Ginsburg, one of the Court's Centrist - liberals, explains her philosophy of judicial restraint. She also talks about the importance of the Establishment Clause of the First AmendmentÑthe separation of church and stateÑto the success of the American experiment. A fascinating look at a role model for women and minorities, as well as an American success story of upward mobility.
