You may not expect to see one of the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court in the pages of a glossy fashion magazine. After all, their clothes are usually obscured by those black robes. But Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg graces the pages of the latest issue of Glamour. And the publication is focused not on the justices’ frocks, but rather her career achievements.
In citing Ginsburg as one of its 2012 Women of the Year, the magazine turned to two of her colleagues to sing her praises. “More than any other person, she can take credit for making the law of this country work for women,” said Justice Elena Kagan, who called Ginsburg “an inspiration.”
Friend and sometimes judicial adversary Justice Antonin G. Scalia attested to Ginsburg’s persuasiveness. “She does it quietly,” Scalia observes, “but she’s very effective.”
The justices will issue orders and hear oral arguments Monday. Check our Supreme Court Report for all the latest news from the Court.
