From the Time article What's Behind the War on Women?:

Women represent just 3% of Fortune 500 CEOs, and less than 15% of corporate executives at top companies worldwide.

Post MBA men start their careers at higher levels than do women—and the women never catch up. Those “first jobs set the stage for all the inequities that follow,” according to a devastating report published in the Harvard Business Review last year.

I'm finding it challenging to name female Fortune 500 CEOs.

Only Ginni Rometty at IBM, Ursula Burns at Xerox, and Meg Whitman at HP come to mind.

And now there's Marissa Mayer at Yahoo, too.
