If the proportion of women in Congress is pitifully low, then the absence of women CEOs is pathetic. According to Catalyst, women hold only a little over 5% of CEO positions. The list is arranged by the size of the company with a link to company-supplied biographies. These readings can inform the conversation: Women CEOs: Why So Few (HBR); Lack of female CEOs: Not just problem for women (CNN);Why Most Women Will Never Become CEO (Forbes); Advancing Women in Business Leadership (George Washington University); Women on Boards (Lord Davies Commission, UK); and The Glass Precipice (The Economist).
