Global Glass Ceiling

From The Economist: The highest percentage of women in senior management can be found in the Philippines, according to a report by Grant Thornton International, a consultancy. This reflects a tradition of wide participation in society there. Similarly, the egalitarian legacy of communism could explain the high proportion of women near the top of companies in China and Russia.

I love how those bloody wankers cherry-picked the countries in such a way that the U.S. is the first country "below average." No doubt.

1. What about the _size_ of firms?

I notice that the US, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, are below 'average', on the measure used, while the Phillipines, China, Brazil, Russia are above 'average'. The overwhelming bulk of the world's MNEs come from the first group of territories, while the second hardly have any MNEs at all, if any.

2. Re comment above. I don't think it was deliberate.
