By these women stepping up they paved the road for other women to follow in their footsteps and to purse carrers in the FBI.

Malon's background helped with the stamina and in the firing range.
"The FBI takes you from zero. They wanted you to learn the FBI way so the instruction was very rigourous. We went through the same physical training with the rest of our classmates and we were held to the same FBI standards."
" In St. Louis, they just let me be an agent and do my work like everybody else. That's the way you prove yourself-by doing the job you were sent to do."
