State Sen. Verna L. Jones-Rodwell, the chairwoman of Baltimore's Senate delegation, announced her retirement Monday, effectively ceding her seat to Baltimore County Del. Shirley Nathan-Pulliam after the state merged their districts. The development marks the latest step of legislative influence leaving the city's limits - the result of a state redistricting process that will leave Baltimore with three less lawmakers. After redistricting moved much of her 44th District into Baltimore County, Jones-Rodwell faced a tough Democratic primary challenge from Nathan-Pulliam.

The year 2007 became known as "the year of the recall" when the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued warnings on 473 products, the highest annual number in a decade. Many of the voluntary recalls involved imported goods, including children's toys and jewelry that contained toxic lead-based paint. The public outcry led to passage the next year of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, which put in place tougher penalties and requirements for an array of products. Inez Tenenbaum, who was sworn in to lead the commission last year, has implemented even more safeguards.

The topic - how women can use their power to create work lives they really want - seemed to strike a chord.
