WBGO's Alexandra Hill reports on Ginsburg’s ties to Rutgers University Law School in Newark  where she was a law professor from 1963 through 1972. It was there that she helped to build what is now one of the most respected and widely published law journals in the country, The Women's Rights Law Reporter, it's also the place where Ginsburg developed her deep interest in gender equality.
