Women In Norwegian Boardrooms

Getting more women into boardrooms is certainly important — 9 percent of the S&P 500 have all-male boards — so in Norway, the government is taking steps to increase equality. Publicly held companies in the country that don’t meet a compulsory 40 percent female non-executive board requirement risk dissolution. Because of the requirement, put in place two years ago, Norway now has the highest proportion of female non-executive directors in the world. But the quota also means that men are getting let go in order to make room for more women. Do you think this is a good idea for helping women get experience and make a bigger impact in the business world, or will it only breed resentment? [Guardian.co.uk]
