There will be panel discussions the next day about women in the arts, sciences, cultural preservation and business. The sessions will be at the Drury Plaza Hotel.

Organizers said there are scholarships available for college students and young people ages 18 to 29 to attend the symposium.

Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993. She is an opera fan and usually attends performances at the Santa Fe Opera each summer.
