Iron Butterfly

by National Security Institute and AWIC

The first podcast by and for women in the US Intelligence Community, co-produced by the Amazing Women of the IC (AWIC) and National Security Institute at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School. The Iron Butterfly Podcast brings you real stories from women in intelligence.

Eighty years ago, Eloise Page joined the Office of Strategic Services, or the OSS, a predecessor for what we recognize today as the United States Intelligence Community. Page started as a secretary, but worked her way to becoming a case officer and later, she became the first female Chief of Station at CIA. Along the way, she earned the nickname “Iron Butterfly,” known for being a fierce fighter with a core of steel. Megan Jaffer, host of the Iron Butterfly Podcast, interviews America’s unsung heroines to reveal their journey in the world of spies and trailblazing new paths for women in national security.
