Ginsburg didn't shy away from the personal, telling NPR's Nina Totenberg she too had been subject to such behavior as a student at Cornell preparing for a chemistry test in the 1950s.
"The first Women's March was hugely attended, and I wondered if it would stop with that or whether the movement would continue", Ginsburg said.
"For so long women were silent, thinking there was nothing you could do about it", she added. "Now the law is on the side of the women and men who encounter harassment, and that's a good thing".
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was no stranger to sexual harassment and discrimination at the start of her prestigious law career. She even divulged a story of her own about how an undergraduate professor at Cornell University once provided her a practice exam with all of the test answers, and expected something in return. "And that's just one of many examples". "The attitude toward sexual harassment was simply, get past it. Boys will be boys".
Ginsburg didn't let the incident with the professor go: "I went to his office and I said, 'How dare you?"

Dolores O'Riordan Dead: The Cranberries Singer Was 46
Later that year, the band canceled most of its European summer and North American fall tour dates due to what was described as Ms. The statement adds: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very hard time".
"That was the very year the Equal Pay Act had passed", Ginsburg said.
Ginsburg didn't just ignore the professor's inappropriate gesture, she said.
When Ginsburg began teaching at Rutgers Law School in 1964 she said that she quickly realized she was being treated differently than her male colleagues.
Ginsburg's statement that she intends to stick around through 2020 is a pretty clear message to conservatives that if they want to be sure to have their way with the Constitution they'd better hang onto the White House and the Senate in the 2020 elections. Scalia died in 2016, and Ginsburg said she loved him for "his sense of humor". The women's rights activist did not disappoint, doling out sage advice and laugh-out-loud amusing anecdotes in her gravelly, deliberate way of speaking. She has seen the 2016 Saturday Night Live "Gins-burn" parody, featuring Kate McKinnon as the black-robed justice.
At one point in the film, West and Cohen sit Ginsburg down to watch clips of McKinnon, so she can judge her impression.
"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will be here", she said.
