    Just in passing - what difference would it make whether The Supremes were all women, all men, or a mix? Provided the justices were qualified - and not political hacks - how would their sex affect anything?

    Obviously Ginsberg doesn't believe that. She believes that women are different than men are. They are going to be more sympathetic, more feeling. It's all about the feelings. Men rely on facts and put feelings aside, or they should. Ginsberg believes that women cannot and it's an essential part of the judicial process.

    Nonsense.

    From the link

    "I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that,” she said."

    She is correct. There is nothing wrong with having an all female SC, just like there's been nothing wrong with the all male courts of the past.
