Tonight we went to dinner and I met three women-a molecular biologist whose interest lies in gene therapy, -a computer scientist with a master's degree who was one of the first women in the field in 1971 and -a woman who is a mother of seven children. They were all equally vital, intelligent women. We've come a long way baby. (A rather famous jingle for a Virginia Slims cigarette commercial that espoused the advancement of women. The cigarettes of course don't work, but the jingle does).
