New York — Kirkpatrick voices surprise at sexual bias she has met
Jeane Kirkpatrick said Wednesday she was surprised by how much sexual discrimination she has encountered in her four years as US ambassador to the United Nations.
Sexism is alive in the United Nations, in the US government, and in American politics, she said at a Manhattan meeting of the Women's Forum, an honorary society of highly successful women in various fields.
She said her most effective weapon when she was patronized was tenacity.
