ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the opinion by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the case Ledbetter versus Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. Ginsburg stood up for women when she refused to conform with the court's decision in Ledbetter, which dealt with the issue of wage discrimination against women. She said the court does not comprehend, or is indifferent, to the ways in which women in the country can be victims of pay discrimination.
