Last week’s question

Who was the first woman to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations?

a. Eugenie Anderson
b. Jeane Kirkpatrick
c. Madeleine Albright
d. Susan Rice

The correct answer is B. President Ronald Reagan appointed Jeane Kirkpatrick US Ambassador to the United Nations in 1981. She served in that role until 1985. In January 1993, President Bill Clinton nominated Madeleine Albright to be U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. She served from 1993 to 1997. On December 1, 2008, President-elect Barack Obama nominated Susan Rice to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, a position which he also upgraded to cabinet level. The Senate unanimously confirmed Rice as UN Ambassador on January 22, 2009. She is currently the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Eugenie Anderson never served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, but was the first woman appointed chief of mission at the ambassador level in US history (although several other women had been foreign ministers before her).
