Vera Glaser, a journalist who wrote about employment discrimination

From The Washington Post last Sunday, an article about the reporter Vera Glaser, who wrote a five-part series on employment and policy discrimination against women after a press conference with President Nixon.

In 1969, she asked the new president, Richard Nixon, why only 3 of his approximately 200 presidential appointments had been women. Here is an audio link to an interview with Glaser wherein she discusses that Nixon press conference.

Vera Glaser recently died at the age of 92.
