    Re: #9, I believe Army Ranger information (like that of other military special-ops programs) is kept confidential regardless of gender. Glad to know she didn’t receive any specific threats or criticisms.

    #4 – It is SO Alicia Florrick!! I’ve been rewatching The Good Wife and this collarless, zippered, almost armor-like jacket would fit right in with seasons 4 & 5 especially. Now I have to save up for it…
