When discussing the recent #MeToo movement of women speaking up about sexual harassment and assault they've gone through, she said it's "about time".

Ginsburg supported the #MeToo movement in the interview. "You have a husband with a good paying job in NY", the dean responded.

Ginsburg has been a vocal proponent for women's rights and equal pay, co-founding the Women's Rights Law Reporter, a law journal out of Rutgers School of Law, as well as the American Civil Liberties Union's Women's Rights Project.
