Justice Ginsburg Surprises All, Praises Justice Kavanaugh

While most women on the Left were attacking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for his "treatment" of women, the recently appointed justice was making history by hiring an all female team of law clerks.
This move by Kavanaugh even got the attention and approval of liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg.
"Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew," Ginsburg said. "Thanks to his selections, the court has this term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks."
Ginsburg went on to discuss how the lack of women in the Supreme Court is problematic to her.
"Women did not fare nearly as well as advocates," Ginsburg continued. "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."
Kavanaugh has made sure to toot his own horn when it comes to giving women the opportunities they deserve. Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Indeed, Kavanaugh often boasted of giving women professional opportunities throughout his contentious and brutal confirmation battle, which dragged on for several weeks after woman by the name of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexual assaulting her a pool party in high school. He emphatically denied the allegations, which had zero corroborative evidence or witnesses.
"In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have," Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Of course, the Left tried to use Justice Kavanaugh's reputation for hiring women against him during the confirmation battle. The Huffington Post, for instance, interviewed a former Yale law student who said professors told her Kavanaugh hired women with a "certain look" upon her applying for one of his clerkships. In the end, she said nothing unusual happened during her interview and he treated her cordially, nor did she hear rumors of sexual impropriety on his part.
Justice Sotomayor also praised Kavanaugh saying that she was happy to welcome him into the SCOTUS family.
"It was Justice (Clarence) Thomas who tells me that when he first came to the Court, another justice approached him and said, 'I judge you by what you do here. Welcome.' And I repeated that story to Justice Kavanaugh when I first greeted him here," Sotomayor said to David Axelrod.
"When you’re charged with working together for most of the remainder of your life, you have to create a relationship," she continued. "The nine of us are now a family and we’re a family with each of us [having] our own burdens and our own obligations to others, but this is our work family, and it’s just as important as our personal family."
