Women's Rights and Law Enforcement Responsibilities

Been occupied and preoccupied.  Now living with wife's sister and brother-in-law, doing my daily routine (which is different each day).  Not much out of the ordinary to report, other than, as mentioned in prior postings, my current station in life is anything but ordinary.

A memorial tribute to Deputy Chief Gertrude Schimmel is now in order.

There are womens' rights advocates, and then, there are the real womens' rights advocates.  One staunch advocate for women's rights who understood that rights need to be balanced by responsibilities was Gertrude Tannenbaum Schimmel, the first female to attain the rank of Sergeant in the New York Police Department.  Gertrude graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Hunter College, and retired from the NYPD at the rank of Deputy Chief, raising two sons in the process.

Apparently not a flaming feminazi; just one tough Jewish girl from the Bronx.

Gertrude Schimmel died yesterday at the age of 96.

RIP, Gertrude Schimmel.
