Bethany McLean: Role Model

Here's a good role model for girls and young women. Bethaney McLean, 34, exposed the Enron scandal as a writer for Fortune magazine. She's now a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and gets invited to be on the Daily Show with John Stewart and PBS NOW with David Brancaccio just to name a couple.

Co-author of "The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron," McLean was about 25 in March 2001 when her article in Fortune titled, "Is Enron Overpriced?," was the first in a national publication to openly question the company's dealings. The book was eventually turned into a video documentary.

Here's a short video of Bethany McLean on the Daily Show:
