    Gov. David Paterson may not have decided who will fill Hillary Clinton"s Senate seat once she becomes secretary of state, but Hunter College President Jennifer Raab appears to have made up her mind. â??Governor Paterson take note, Raab said, â??we on the Upper East Side and Hunter College strongly suggest that you look no farther than our own Representative Maloney. Raab made her plug at a Dec. 1 event featuring Rep. Carolyn Maloney (right) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (center), who spoke about their recently published books, careers and women"s progress in general at a discussion moderated by award-winning journalist Lynn Sherr (left). Pelosi talked about the significance of being elected Speaker of the House by her peers, who are mostly men. â??It was really so much more than a glass ceiling, she said. â??It was a marble ceiling. Both women stressed that much more needed to be done to achieve gender equality. Pointing to the sexist insults and scrutiny that Clinton endured during the Democratic primary for president, Maloney called 2008 â??the year the country came face to face with misogyny. â??Someone should write a book about it and someone has. It"s called Rumors of Our Progress Have Been Greatly Exaggerated, she joked, referring to her own book. Pelosi"s book, Know Your Power: A Message to America"s Daughters, is scheduled for release this month.
