Soledad O'Brien spent the Thursday evening before her final show as anchor of CNN's "Starting Point" in the District, attending a screening and leading discussion of "No Job for a Woman: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII." The hourlong documentary, narrated by "The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies, sparked a discussion among O'Brien, female members of the military, White House Fellow Missy Ryan and director/writer Michele Midori Fillion about the hazards of finding "female facilities" in the field.

The event, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, filled the auditorium at New York University's satellite campus.
