Gender bigots elevated into positions of considerable authority: Some examples

Initially in this post I’ve elected to profile Vera Baird and Alison Saunders (UK) and Mary Koss (USA).

With regards to prominent femocrats in the UK, I know that Mike Buchanan’s web site offers a huge amount of relevant background material. One of the things Mike does is write to these women – sometimes by way of a Freedom of Information request – demanding answers to some very pertinent and pointed questions. It can make for some very interesting reading.

In relation to Australia, in previous blog posts I have already profiled Elizabeth Broderick and Natasha Stott Despoja.
