Sexism on America’s Front Lines
Editor’s Note: Susan Glasser’s weekly podcast, The Global Politico, joined Laura Rosenberger and other prominent Washington, DC women in security politics discussing the culture of sexism in the workplace.
Laura Rosenberger remembers telling a senior State Department official that she was going on a beach vacation. He responded by saying how much he’d enjoy thinking about her wearing a bikini. With another senior official, it was always a “head squirm,” she remembered, “so he couldn’t succeed in kissing me on the lips.”
