Game change

I consider myself an unlikely candidate for the role of elder statesman.  Elder stateswoman?  Convention convinced me.  I am on a learning curve.

What is the female equivalent
Of elder statesman?
I*m it.
I do not know
When the transition happened.
The game has changed.
I do not know the rules.
I do not know
The dress code.
I do not know
Where I sit
At the table:
The head
The foot
Or somewhere
In between.
Maybe I am
Under the table.
Carefully I consider
What happens
Underneath the conversation
Going on
Above me.
