Patricia Ireland

As Legacy woman mentioned, Ireland’s been canned from the YWCA after only 6 months on the job. The Washington Post blames conservative Christian groups like the Traditional Values Coalition. The TVC, in turn, is taking credit for same. I’m sure they played a role, but I have a hunch it was something else. Ms. Ireland headed NOW for 10 years. This may sound impressive, but my sense has always been that the organization is essentially a paper tiger. It puts together conferences, issues press releases and books TV guests and that’s about it. The YWCA actually has buildings and huge payrolls and actually does things. Ms. Ireland is a professional complainer. My guess is she was just incompetent.
