Why do so few women wear the green uniform? The agency’s male-dominated culture, as well as its training and recruitment practices, are partially to blame, said Catherine Sanz, executive director of Women in Federal Law Enforcement. During training, she said, there’s an attitude that “we’re going to wipe you out so only the best and brightest are left. But it’s often not the best and brightest who are left, it’s whoever survives the process that gets the badge and the gun.”
