Wow, this is eye opening:
According to the 2014 "International Business Report" by accounting firm Grant Thornton, countries like Russia, Indonesia, Latvia and the Philippines have 40% or more women in senior management, while industrialized countries have about 20%. The U.S. is among the bottom 10 countries in the report with just 22%, along with Spain (22%), the UK (20%), Denmark (14%) and Germany (14%).
The report, which surveyed about 6,600 privately owned companies in 45 countries, found that the proportion of senior roles filled by women across the BRICS countries — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — surpasses 30%, exceeding the global average of 24%.
