Meet The Federal Reserve’s First Female Chairwoman Janet Yellen

President Obama nominated Janet Yellen to lead the Fed after Ben Bernanke steps down. Yellen will be the first woman to ever run the Federal Reserve and the second woman ever to lead a central bank. She would have been the first but Russia nominated Elvira Nabiullina to head its central bank in June. Nice move, Putin. On StockTwits we saw several great shares about Yellen and the Fed.
