It looks to me as if
there are an awful lot of "boys" in power central.
But right now, even the women
have to think and act like men
to gain access to power. . .
and I'm not sure that we exercise it differently
than men do, especially when we're so new
to top level governmental decision-making
and our only models for how to do it
have been powerful men..
Baby steps. . . .
p.s. The other woman in the situation room photo
is 34-year old Tufts University graduate
and Harvard Kennedy School of Government alum
Audrey Tomason, Director of CounterTerrorism.

to be one of the first wave of women
going in respectable numbers to law school,
