Quoted: Nine is enough (access required)

"Nine. There've been nine men there for a long time, right? So why not nine women?" ~ Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, when asked by ABC's Diane Sawyer how many women on the Supreme Court would be enough.

  1. Fair enough. But can we start with Janice Rogers Brown? Certainly an accurate representation of female perspectives would include a more diverse spectrum of views. I mean no disrespect to Justice Ginsburg (quite the opposite, actually), and by no means would I suggest that the views of the current female justices are monolithic. But the advantage of any affirmative campaign for fuller representation must ultimately be found in a diversity of viewpoints.
