Liberals around the world need a tissue right now…
Ruth Bader Ginsburg publicly praised colleague Brett Kavanaugh for helping establish Supreme Court history with an unprecedented move that progressives will surely praise.
“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,” she said.
However, Ginsburg cautioned that further progress is needed for equal gender representation.
“Women did not fare nearly as well as advocates,” Ginsburg explained. “Only about 21 percent of the attorneys presenting oral argument this term were female; of the 34 attorneys who appeared more than once, only six were women.”
After a controversial confirmation battle, Kavanaugh followed through on his promise to hire only female clerks.
