CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel: "I did my part, quietly and through hard work, to break down some of those barriers. And I was proud to serve as the first woman to be number two in the clandestine service. It is not my way to trumpet the fact that I am a woman up for the top job at CIA—but I would be remiss in not remarking on it."
"Not least because of the outpouring of support from young women at CIA... They consider it a good sign for their own prospects," she also said.
