Ginsburg also recalled a period when she was in the "lonely position" of being the only woman on the court after Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement in 2006 and before Justice Sonia Sotomayor's appointment in 2009.

"It was a lonely position. Viewing the court, there was something wrong with the picture," she said. "The public was seeing these eight, rather well-fed men coming on the bench, and then there was this rather small woman. The concept of 'we the people' has become ever more inclusive."

Former President Bill Clinton, who nominated Ginsburg to the court in 1993, delivered the introductory remarks for the justice.

"One thing I did not see coming when I nominated her is her ascendance to pop culture icon," Clinton said, cracking a joke about the justice's famed workout routine.

"All of us hope that she will stay on the court forever."
