Author recounts forgotten history of how women broke government's glass ceilng

No one thinks twice about women executives at the highest ranks of government. But it wasn't that long ago that women were mostly confined to the typing or clerical ranks.
Lee Stout, the author of "A Matter of Simple Justice: The Untold Story of Barbara Hackman Franklin and a Few Good Women" joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp to discuss how and when women started to become full members of the federal workforce.
Mostly forgotten today, Franklin was hired by President Richard Nixon to help recruit more women to serve in the upper echelons of government. She exceeded all expectations, bringing more than 100 women into leadership positions.
