WOMEN NOW RUN TOP THREE CIA DEPARTMENTS




Serhat TUNAR – TDO-  The CIA’s first female director has appointed Cynthia “Didi” Rapp as deputy director for analysis, meaning the top three departments of the agency are, for the first time ever, all run by women, reported The Independent.

Gina Haspel, who was appointed last year by Donald Trump to run the intelligence agency, had already named Elizabeth Kimber in December as the first woman to head the operations directorate.

They have joined Dawn Meyerriecks, who is the long-term deputy director for science and technology.

The rise of the “sisterhood” – as a crew of female CIA analysts who helped track down Osama bin Laden were known – to the most senior roles in the agency comes after NBC reported almost half the entire workforce is now female.
