The left would be very wise to listen to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She has repeatedly pointed out to anyone who will listen how Kavanaugh is not the man the media and others made him out to be.
In fact, she praises him for his excellent treatment of women and for hiring the first all-female staff.
He should be praised by others for this as well, but he will not. Look, Kavanaugh has proven to be an independent judge and the left owes him an apology.
From CBS: Supreme Court justice and liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Tuesday praised newly-confirmed Justice Brett Kavanugh for appointing an entirely female staff. Ginsburg spoke about her own history in the fight for gender equality to a packed auditorium at Georgetown Law School.
Ginsburg praised Kavanaugh — whose controversial confirmation was marked by allegations of sexual assault — and remarked that the court’s upcoming fall term will be the first time in history that more women will be clerking than men.
“There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term and it’s thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh,” Ginsburg said.
Ginsburg made history herself as being only the second woman in history to be added to the Supreme Court after being nominated by former President Clinton in 1993.
Since her confirmation, she has become a leading voice for women’s rights and a cultural icon. Ginsburg is often referred to as the “Notorious RBG” and her face has adorned scores of t-shirts and posters with that slogan.
“I should say what we were doing in the 70s — we were getting rid of all of the over-explicit gender-based classification,” Ginsburg said. “There was nothing subtle about it. It was women can’t do this, women can’t do that.”
Ginsburg said that while the “explicit barriers” women faced are largely “gone,” many still continue to face “unconscious bias.”
She cited the 1994 lawsuit against AT&T where nine female employees argued that the AT&T Corporation gave them smaller salaries or denied their promotions because of their gender.
