Several months back, I had the opportunity to contribute two articles for a publication that Faircount Media was doing to commemorate the centennial of the first woman police officer in the United States. The publication recently came out, and the items that I put together for the publication, “100 Years of Women in Law Enforcement,” were just made available online. They include:
- An Interview with Fran Townsend, Former Assistant to President George W. Bush for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism and Chair, the Homeland Security Council, the White House; and
- Protecting America: Women Leaders in the Homeland Security Arena.
Both of these items take a look at the distinction the homeland security arena has with so many women playing pivotal, senior roles. There is much to celebrate with this diversity in leadership and the accomplishments that are being made in the various public and private sectors are worthy of note. I hope you will enjoy both articles.
