Fatima Goss Graves, the CEO & President of the National Women's Law Center (NWLC), discusses Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's legacy on the Supreme Court, what that legacy meant for women, as well as, a few of Justice Ginsburg's most memorable decisions. We also discuss the current process to replace Justice Ginsburg, and how it reveals the vulnerabilities in our democracy. Lastly, we discuss how the Bush V Gore decision of 2000 demonstrates why rushing to replace Ginsburg so close to an election, is simply a power grab on the part of Republicans, and is historically anomalous to replacing Supreme Court justices.
