I wrote this last week, but saved it for International Women's Day.  I spend alot of time interacting with a cross-section of Museum staffers all over the country, as we work to develop audioguides, apps, multimedia experiences, etc.  75% of the people that I partner with are female - curators, education directors, interpretive media specialists, front-line visitor services managers, outreach and volunteer coordinators, Access advocates, etc.  As the Met undergoes their search for a new Director, I can't help but wonder - why are these dedicated, brilliant, dynamic women who are "down in the ranks" and doing incredible work not rising to executive leadership positions?  Liza Oliver's article is exactly on point.
