Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Thursday said work-life balance remains elusive in achieving gender equality, and she blamed “firms” that “have not yet been sufficiently accommodating.”

Ginsburg, after describing the dearth of assistance for female lawyers with children when she graduated from law school, told the audience, “I thought in the electronic age it would be easier to overcome because if you’re a lawyer, for example, you have the entire law library at your fingertips wherever you are. But firms have not yet been sufficiently accommodating.”
