Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg : “I was the first tenured”

I was the first tenured woman at Columbia. That was 1972; every law school was looking for its woman. Why? Because Stan Pottinger, who was then head of the office for civil rights of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, was enforcing the Nixon government contract program. – Ruth Bader Ginsburg
