Trailblazer: Banker Janet Yellen

A new day is dawning.

President Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be the head of the Federal Reserve, our nation's central bank. A woman has never held this post in the USA and a woman has never been the head of any nation's central bank in the world!

Ms. Yellen is presently the #2 person at the Federal Reserve behind the retiring chairman, Ben Bernanke. His tenure will end January 31, 2014 and Yellen will assume her duties as the Chairman if approved for the position. Keep your fingers crossed she will break down this barrier for women.

You rock, Janet Yellen!!
