Those Glass Ceilings

I think when I write about Nancy Pelosi’s role in American politics I aim to make clear that there are many ceilings to break through in our society, so many, in fact that we fail to recognize them properly when they are laid in front of us.

Take for instance this news: Ann E. Dunwoody has been made a four-star general in the U.S. Army, the first woman ever to do so.  Not only that, but she has also been promoted to commander of the Army Material Command, another female first.

I read this on the Daily Beast; it ranked 17th on that site’s Cheat Sheet.  That kind of news should be made much more prominent, if we are truly a society that praises the breaking of glass ceilings.
