Manage episode 358081723 series 2387048
March is National Women’s history month and this year's theme is, "Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories." So I’m republishing Episode 264: History of Women in the FBI, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the modern-day female agent.
In this encore episode, active and retired agents share personal stories from their FBI careers, historical details about Director Hoover's initial rejection, and the Bureau's eventual acceptance of women as agents.
I hope you’ll listen or re-listen to the show, especially to understand the significance of the FBI’s recent pledge to advance women in policing. The national 30x30 pledge aims to bring more women into policing to improve public safety, community outcomes, and trust in law enforcement. I’ve updated the episode show notes to include a link to the press release about the pledge.
