WOMEN - GM's First Female CEO

"General Motors names company insider Mary Barra as first female CEO" PBS Newshour 12/10/2013


JUDY WOODRUFF (Newshour):  General Motors has named a new CEO, and she's a woman, one who worked her way up in a company once known as an old boys club.  The news comes one day after the federal government sold the last of the GM shares it purchased during the big auto bailout.

Micheline Maynard long covered the auto industry, and she is now a contributor to Forbes.  She's a lecturer at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and the editor of a new journalism project, Curbing Cars:  How We Get Around.

Micki Maynard, hello.  Welcome back to the NewsHour.

Tell us, who is this new CEO, Mary Barra?
