Another non-environmental wonder

A spate of recent coverage highlighting systemic discrimination against women in business (Silicon Valley, pregnant women everywhere, financial services) can only be enhanced by this gem - it's hard to imagine a new male CEO taking over one of the world's largest industrial businesses being described in this way (via NY Times):

"'Mary was picked for her talent, not her gender,' Mr. Akerson [current CEO, GM] said in a conference call with reporters. But on a personal note, he said, promoting Ms. Barra to become chief executive was an emotional moment for him. 'It was almost like watching your daughter graduate from college,' he said."
