Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said there was "no doubt" that sexism was a significant factor contributing to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's loss in the 2016 election.
CBS host Charlie Rose asked Ginsburg Tuesday night at an event in New York City whether sexism influenced the 2016 election.
"I have no doubt that it did," Ginsburg replied.
He then asked her if this was a decisive factor whether Clinton being a woman was what hamstrung her campaign.
"There are so many things that might have been decisive," Ginsburg said. "But that was a major, major factor."
During the campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump criticized Ginsburg and called on her to retire after she made comments expressing concern for the future of the Supreme Court, should Trump be elected.
Ginsburg later apologized for commenting on the 2016 election.
Ginsburg will start her 25th term on the court next week.
