Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told an audience Monday night that "there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine," the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Ginsburg, the second woman ever appointed to the high court after Sandra Day O'Connor, told the 4,000-plus audience at Roosevelt University in Chicago that she has no plans to retire anytime soon, according to the Sun-Times.
"There is still work to be done," the Sun-Times quoted Ginsburg at the "American Dream Reconsidered" conference. "There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine."
There are three women currently on the high court — Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor join Bader Ginsburg, appointed in 1993 by Bill Clinton.
Bader Ginsburg, 84, and Justice David Kennedy, 81, are surrounded by speculation about being the next justices to retire.
