Because it features so many women who are smart, capable, and wield power like men do. But even so, there has not previously been a moment as powerful as this one in S05E07.

There is such power here. All women — only women — inhabiting one of the most potent symbols of authority and leadership that exists in our culture: the Oval Office in the White House.

You think this looks weird or odd? How do you think it looks when a room like this is full of men only?

It gives me chills. I love it.
