Harvard Poised to Name Woman President

Harvard University is expected to name its new president Sunday. For the first time in 370 years, that person is likely to be a woman.

Drew Gilpin Faust is slated to replace Larry Summers, who resigned from the post last year. Summers resigned, in part, over his remarks about women.
