Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared her experience with sexual harassment in the 1950s.
"Every woman of my vintage knows what sexual harassment is, although we didn't have a name for it", said Justice Ginsburg. A documentary about her life, RBG, premiered at the film festival in Utah, and RBG herself was there to speak on a panel about the film and her lifelong fight for women's rights.
In one instance, Ginsburg said while she was a student at Cornell, a chemistry professor offered her a practice exam after she asked for help - only the professor provided a copy of the actual test he'd be giving.
"The next day on the test - the test is the practice exam", she said.
A report earlier this month said Ginsburg has already hired multiple law clerks for future terms.
"I went to his office and I said, 'How dare you?"
During the Q&A, Ginsburg also spoke about the sexism she encountered as a young professor at Rutger's Law School. "You have a husband with a good paying job in NY", the dean responded.

Women in the legal profession and beyond who have experienced sexual harassment now know that they have a Supremely powerful ally, and she plans to be around for a long, long time.
Despite justices' presumed objectivity, Ginsburg has voiced her dislike of President Donald Trump, controversially calling him "a faker" who has "no consistency" in July 2016. "This was not considered anything you could do anything about, that the law could do anything about".
During a Sundance Cinema Talks conversation with Nina Totenberg, Ginsburg said that her health is "very good" and that she still enjoys the work. "When I see women appearing every place in numbers, I'm less anxious about a backlash than I might have been 20 years ago".
After a temporary injunction was issued against Columbia, it "decided they didn't really have to lay off anyone", she said. "I liked the actress who portrayed me".
"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will be here".
