SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says discrimination against women is more subtle than when she began her legal career more than 50 years ago.

Ginsburg made the remarks Friday at a kickoff event for a women’s symposium at a downtown Santa Fe hotel, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported (https://bit.ly/1sLJLaa).

She told an audience of about 350 people that “rooting out unconscious bias is much harder” than simply changing laws that would prevent women from holding positions such as firefighter or police officer.

The 81-year-old justice was the founding director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Women’s Rights Project.

She says one way women today can help fight for equality is by voting.

Ginsburg talked about several subjects, including her two bouts with cancer and opera.
