When Judith Nelson graduated from law school in 1965, women made up only 4% of her graduating class. There were even fewer female partners at law firms. And there was a prevailing attitude that certain jobs were "women's work"--and law wasn't one of them. Now Nelson is among a small but growing number of women who have made it to the top ranks of California's biggest corporations. Women may still meet resistance in striving to make it into upper ranks, but many believe that the tide is turning.

Maria Erspamer loaded the big white rental truck with her belongings, stowed her cats, Pumpkin and Foxy, and slid onto the passenger seat next to an old friend. Then they headed east on the Santa Monica Freeway. Los Angeles was soon in the rearview mirror. Erspamer felt giddy. She had liked being a free-lance advertising writer and novice surfer, liked her funky digs three blocks from the ocean in Venice, liked her clever, irony-armored entertainment industry friends.

When tax increase measures fail in Orange County, the fact that the voters are conservative is blamed. I think this is frequently an alibi for the failure of the political consultants to justify the passage of their measures. Orange County voters are more likely than others to know that our nation is in bad shape financially, that the deficit may not matter but that the amount they have to pay in income tax to support the interest on the deficit certainly does matter. They know that they face increases in state taxes and in federal taxes.

Iraqi Health Ministry officials have ordered a halt to a count of civilian deaths from the war and have told workers not to release figures already compiled, the head of the ministry's statistics department said Wednesday.
