The Skirts have arrived…!

With faces reflecting a variety of shades and hues and from backgrounds that come from diverse walks of life, today’s women wear their skirts well. In their briefcases you’ll find a plethora of educational degrees: B.A., B.S., M.B.A, J.D., or even a Ph.D. Oh, and you will also find the lipstick.
Women account for 3% of Fortune 500 CEO’s, which might sound like a sliver of the pie considering the number of existing companies globally. However, compared to the list of 8 top bosses in 2005, last year yielded a record 15 women, that’s almost doubled in four years.
Let’s get serious here, these women are bringing home the bacon to the tune of 14.2 million US dollars annually on average, that‘s a lot of frying!
It is also worth noting that women are far more risk-averse than men which would seemingly make them a safer bet to run any large or small firm seeking to play it safe, something all shareholders might want to closely examine at the next stockholders shin-dig. Shout out to BP!
Lastly, a round of applause for CEO Irene Rosenfeld of Kraft Food, who in second place on the Fortune 500 list, pocketed 26.3 million dollars. It will impress you to know that she earned her Ph.D. before she became available to the public via the World Wide Web. That’s happiness for any women’s group seeking equal rights in the work place.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the skirts have arrived and are here to stay!
