they all happen to be female?
So, like, if only men got called, this wouldn't even be a thing. It would be a regular day. Only men got called--mostly representative of the press pool. No cause for alarm.
But only women get to ask questions--BFD!
Since I think most of us wimmen-folk have similar concerns to men-folk, I will say this is just a cool way of reminding that reporting is a job we can thankyouverymuch do just as well. But it was also a nice backhand at the institutions that tend to consider female reporters as "distaff": rather than serious journos, and don't give sweet presidential coverage spots to women. Because really--asking questions? Not really a gendered activity, is it? I know I have questions.
Anyway--yay, brief moment of singled-out equality-ishness! And that actually is, however backhanded, my positive spin on it.
