What is all this binder business?

I'm sorry, but would someone please explain this whole Mitt Romney and binders for women thing? Because I've been so steeped for so long in transgender issues that, to me, the only things I can think of when I hear the word "binders" is either breast binders for FTMs or Trapper Keeper type binders, and neither of these makes any sense to me, in a Mitt Romney context.

As I understand it, it was essentially a verbal stumble. He was claiming that when he needed to fill cabinet level posts in the state government, he went to various groups to ask them to find qualified women, and those groups gave him "binders full of women" -- meaning, apparently, notebooks full of women's resumes and other related material.

Of course,

1. He didn't approach the groups, they approached him, and

2. It's kind of disturbing that he apparently couldn't come up with any qualified candidates from among women he'd worked with.
