Congratulations to Mr. Cary Sherman On Being Named One of “The Most Influential Women in Washington”

Menopause has has clearly taken a physical toll on Cary

A hearty congratulations to Mr. Cary Sherman, who was recently named to a prestigious National Journal survey of the “The Most Influential Women in Washington.”  Sherman joins more than 30 other influencer-ettes on the National Journal’s survey, including former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

So, how influential does a man have to be in order to be named one of the most influential women in Washington?  Pretty damn influential! A graduate of Harvard Law School (’71), Sherman was named Chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)  in August of 2011.  In February of 2012, he famously penned a controversial New York Times op-ed entitled “What Wikipedia Won’t Tell You” supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

The nomination to the National Journal’s list apparently came from RIAA itself (nice try, RIAA).  Cara Duckworth, the RIAA’s vice president of communications emailed The Hill to acknowledge the mistake. “Ha. Summer interns hard at work?” Duckworth wrote.  “We’ve let [National Journal] know about the error — and thank them for the leg up on the competition in the male version of the survey.” 

To be fair to the RIAA interns, it would have taken some major sleuthing to determine Sherman’s true gender.  For instance, glancing at the spelling of Sherman’s name (“Cary,” not “Carrie” or “Kerri”), or looking on Wikipedia, or surfing RIAA’s own website, or entering the name “Cary Sherman” in that little box located next to the word “Google” on their computer screens.
