In 2017, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg claimed sexism was one of the reasons Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential race.

On Sunday, she doubled down on this claim during a Columbia University Women's Conference.

Ginsburg was asked about her previous comments and doubled down, saying that sexism was a “major, major factor” in Clinton's loss.

“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized. I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part.”
