Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did not hold back from talking about gender politics and partisanship Monday night at Roosevelt University in Chicago, but avoided discussing current events after a controversy last year.
"There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine," Ginsburg said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
She added, "I think there has not been a better time to be a woman in the legal profession because no doors are closed."
She also decried the partisanship that she believes was evident at recent Supreme Court justice nomination hearings.
"I can only hope that in my lifetime they will stop that nonsense," Ginsburg said, according to the Sun-Times. "Partisanship in selections of justices is a dangerous thing."
Ginsburg reportedly said she has much work to do and no plans of leaving the bench soon.
The Supreme Court's new term begins next month and the 84-year-old justice has given no indication of whether or when she might choose to retire. In her new book released on Tuesday, failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said she thought Ginsburg might have retired if Clinton had won the 2016 election.
Ginsburg got herself into hot water last year after calling President Trump a "faker" and critiquing his comments on the campaign trail, a highly unusual move for a Supreme Court justice. Trump called on her to retire.
Ginsburg later apologized for her comments.
