Women On the Rise

     

Yes, risen all the way to the top in one of Washington DC's most treasured and historic institutions - the Smithsonian. All cheers, to find now most of the fabled  buildings now have women directors.
Air & Space, National Museum of American History, Museum of American Art  and the Renwick Gallery (teamed), the National Portrait Gallery, and National Gallery of Art (which is part federal and part private), the US Botanic Garden and director of the Smithsonian Gardens.
I may have missed one or two.
How did this happen and is now seemingly not come to public attention ?- at least not until a December convocation/daylong seminar on the subject of women's contributions  at many levels in many of the diverse parts of the storied buildings around or near the National Mall.
