Senate Yellen

FILE - In this Nov. 14, 2013 file photo, Janet Yellen, of California, smiles as she is introduced as being the first female to be nominated as Federal Reserve Board chair, prior to testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Senate is ready to approve Yellen's nomination to become the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve in its century-long history. Yellen is a long-time advocate of fighting unemployment and a backer of the central bank's recent efforts to spur the economy with low interest rates and massive bond purchases. She was expected to win easy approval in Monday's vote. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
