Women now outnumber men in college and have progressed in the workplace.

Then why are they receiving less compensation and getting fewer higher level jobs than their male counterparts?

Early last year, a chief executive of one of the largest European banking institutions caused an uproar when he commented on appointing women to a then all male board. Basically, he said it would make it “prettier and more colorful.” If you think this sort of mindset about women in boardrooms is rare in the U.S., think again.
