Janet Reno – First Woman U.S. Attorney General

Janet Wood Reno – Sworn in today, March 11, 1993, as the first woman to serve as United States Attorney General.  A Clinton nominee, she served as the seventy-eighth, and the second-longest serving in United States history. “As a pioneering woman in law enforcement and politics, Reno’s place as a feminist icon is secured. That she endured, with great dignity, the demeaning and sexist depictions of her—and, in a totally classy move, appeared in Ferrell’s dance party on her last day as attorney general—provides ongoing inspiration for how to be a public woman in, still, a man’s world.” Follow this link to read the entire Politico story.
