"My vision for the country? An America where young girls viewing the news (paper, TV, web) see their gender represented in historic proportions..."I haven't paid such close attention to prior administrations' appointments, but I have to say I'm impressed with Obama's track record so far. One of his senior advisors will be Valerie Jarret (photo above). His Energy and Environment advisory team looks to be about half women - including women of color. His economic team includes key women.
Of the announced appointments that I've logged, he's pretty close to 50% women and with substantial diversity. I'm using the change.gov press room for the info.
