The late justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the second woman to sit on the US Supreme Court, after Sandra Day O'Connor. Ginsburg talked a lot about her experience as a female attorney and jurist in a 2017 interview at The Aspen Institute. The interviewer is the Institute's Elliot Gerson, an attorney who, himself, clerked at The Supreme Court. They also discussed her friendship with the late justice Antonin Scalia, which became the subject of a comic opera. And opera's where Gerson started the conversation, noting that Ginsburg loved the arts.
