Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, only the second woman in history to be added to the high court, praised newly-confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh for appointing an all-female staff of law clerks.

“There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term and it’s thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh,” Ginbsurg said last Tuesday during a sit-down at Georgetown Law School.

“Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew. Thanks to his selections, the court has this term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks.”

Kavanaugh, whose contentious confirmation hearing last summer was marked by allegations of sexual assault – touted his record on sending female law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court. He also promised to hire an all-female law clerk team.

Ginsburg during her visit to Georgetown also recounted her difficulty landing a job after her graduation from Columbia Law School in 1959 because she was a mother and how a professor threatened that he would never recommend another Columbia Law student to a clerkship at the Southern District of New York if Ginsburg was not provided with a job.
