Barbara Mikulski remembers what a man's world the Senate was when she arrived 24 years ago.
"There's this place called the Senate gym. The locker room," Mikulski says, slowly and emphatically for effect.
"They just couldn't accommodate me and I'm not much of a jock anyway, but that's where they networked and that's where they bonded," Mikulski says, speaking of her male Senate colleagues.
