"The child was what his teachers called "hyperactive" and I called "lively", Ginsburg said, but what bothered her more was the school's apparent impression that she was her son's sole parent. The Supreme Court justice reportedly hired a full lineup of law clerks that will last at least through the 2020 term. When asked if she is expecting a backlash against the campaign, she said that time will tell what happens. She also deliberately made a couple of mistakes on her exam. Ginsburg noted that this was just one of many experiences she had of sexual harassment, which she did not divulge or elaborate. If one of the Court's five remaining defenders of abortion rights (as reflected in the 2016 case of Whole Women's Health v. Hellerstedt, which struck down state abortion restrictions using the standards laid out in Casey) - that would be Ginsburg, Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan - steps down and gives Trump another appointment, we could be back in the days of states determining the legality of abortion before you could say "turn back the clock". "And I knew exactly what he wanted in return", she said.
The conversation then turned towards her thoughts on the #MeToo movement as a spearhead of women's rights over the decades. Taking matters into her own hands, she "went to his office and said, 'How dare you?" "And that was the end of that".
"Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, though we didn't have a name for it", said Ginsburg, adding that the attitude women faced was "get past it", and "boys will be boys".

Asked if she was ever a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, Ginsburg was honest. "For so long, women were silent". "Now the law is on the side of the women and men who encounter harassment, and that's a good thing". A New York University law student adapted it from rapper Notorious B.I.G., and the meme has since extended beyond the online world to songs, T-shirts, mugs, and all sorts of Ginsburg memorabilia. But, Ginsburg said, there wasn't much that could be done at the time.
