Valerie Plame: Spy AND Working Mom

So, we’re not the only ones who’ve had to bring the kids to work in a pinch. “Mothers who are spies, it turns out, face the same juggling act as other working moms.” Thus began the

“After a year at home following the birth of twins, Valerie Plame Wilson returned to work in April 2001 in the

branch of the CIA’s Counterproliferation Division,” the review said. “’When I had to deal with pressing operational issues I had no choice but to bring the toddlers into my office on a Saturday.’” (October 2007)
