Washington, Dc Metro Area
Hope Leray (formerly known as Hope Faulk) is the administrative assistant at the second-oldest insurance company in Washington, DC. She is now queen of pencil skirts and has mastered exactly one pair of sensible black heels well enough to wear them at the office. She answers phones and makes copies and re-stocks the coffee in the breakroom. Sometimes, she feels like a sell-out and a bad feminist...until she recalls that she is the primary (read: only) breadwinner and her husband does most of the cooking and cleaning in their newlywed-plus-three-cats, progressive household.
