Jessica Contrera writes that Albright has become a “millennial icon” because of her position as the first female secretary of state, citing tweets and statements from young women and college students.
“Everywhere she and her famed brooches go, the aura of lovable feminist granny follows,” the piece states.
Twitter users mocked The Washington Post for the silly headline and piece lauding Albright.
