WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH SPOTLIGHT
In the mid-1980s, Rice spent a period in Washington, D.C., working as an international affairs fellow attached to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In 1989, she became director of Soviet and East European affairs with the National Security Council, and special assistant to President George H.W. Bush during the dissolution of the Soviet Union and German reunification. In 1997, she served on the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender-Integrated Training in the Military.
A few years later, in 2001, Rice was appointed national security adviser by President George W. Bush, becoming the first African American woman (and woman) to hold the post. She went on to become the first African American woman to serve as U.S. Secretary of State — she became the nation's 66th Secretary of State in 2004, following Colin Powell's resignation, and served from 2005 to 2009.
As Secretary of State, Rice dedicated her department to "Transformational Diplomacy," with a mission of building and sustaining democratic, well-governed states around the world and the Middle East in particular.
To that end, she relocated American diplomats to such hardship locations as Iraq, Afghanistan and Angola, and required them to become fluent in two foreign languages. She also created a high-level position to defragment U.S. foreign aid.
In the beginning of Morgan’s career, teammates nicknamed her “Baby Horse,” a name derived from her youth and equine-like gait. Not having begun club soccer until she was 14 years old, a fairly late start, she was all raw, wild power. Today, in the words of teammate Megan Rapinoe, Morgan has evolved into a “full-on stallion.” Her years in the WPS and NWSL have taken her all over. She also went to Lyon in 2017—even though it meant time away from her husband, MLS player Servando Carrasco, because she was hungry to go to the environment that would challenge her the most. Her game has evolved to all new levels of dangerous: she’s as able to meg a defender as she is able to out run them, and her vision and runs off the ball are as good as it gets.
