Today’s Lady News: France Suggests Forcing Quotas For Women In The Board Room

  • France has introduced legislation to bring 50/50 gender parity to French board rooms by 2015. All companies listed on the French stock exchange would be required to stock their boards with 50 percent women. The affirmative action-like plan would begin with women on 20 percent of board seats in 18 months and 40 percent of board seats within four years. Presently, women comprise only 10.5 percent of board members in companies listed on the French stock exchange. Norway enacted similar legislation in 2003. [Guardian UK]—I love this idea of diversifying talent by overcoming institutional obstacles with quotas. And by way of comparison, the percentage of female board members on U.S. Fortune 500 companies—considering it is the year 2009—is a paltry 15.2 percent. What do you think?
  • Hooray! There are lots of women on The New York Times‘ “Best Books of 2009″ list! Do you think the diverse offerings are helped by the fact that two of the Times‘ three daily book reviewers, Janet Maslin and Michiko Kakutani, are women? [New York Times]

Doctors Without Borders Gives Voice To Congo War Survivors


Doctors without Borders, the organization that goes to war zones and the forgotten ends of the earth to treat anyone who needs care, is bringing good of a different kind to the people they serve. A few years ago, NBC’s “ER” gave voices to fictional doctors and patients in Darfur, and now the real doctors are offering a voice to the people of the Congo. War has ravaged that country for nearly a decade, bringing with it poverty, cruelty, and disease. It’s been especially brutal for women, because child soldiers and career soldiers alike used rape as a weapon against the women. It was an event so big and awful, it’s been hard to see. That’s why Doctors Without Borders started Condition: Critical, a website which allows people to speak out about their experiences and for the rest of us to communicate back with our support.

Shun, Shag Or Marry: Notorious Cheating Athletes

Scandaltastic politicians aren’t the only ones who run around on their wives. These days, it seems every dude who makes a buck or two has to go gallivanting off into the night while his wife is asleep in bed. Don’t get offended, boys, I’m only stereotyping a little. Sadly, athletes seem to be some of the worst offenders. Maybe it’s all that testosterone or their obsession with scoring? Either way, all this Tiger Woods drama has reminded us that athletes are notorious for running around. But don’t fret, Tiger, you’re in good company … with Alex Rodriguez and Kobe Bryant, that is. After the jump, which of these players (pun!) we’d shun, shag and marry. Keep reading »

A New Way To Wax … Your Clothes?

Being a girly girl during winter is never fun. Seriously, when did tights ever become a “cold-weather fashion staple”? Do they do anything to keep you warm? No. So you have two options—shiver and bear it or pile on the layers, abominable snowman-style. Or, you can try waxing your clothes. Wait, what? Keep reading »

eBay Joins The Online Sample Sale Craze

My inbox is inundated with sample sales — from Gilt Groupe, Editor’s Closet, The Clothing Line, and Daily Candy’s updates. But now there’s one more to add to the list of tempting sales. eBay must feel left out, because they just launched their very own online shopping section. Their Fashion Vault opened with goodies from DKNY up to 70 percent off (which seem to have already sold out). So, if you’re searching for designer deals, make sure to sign up for their newsletter and prepare to click fast for your desired purchases. At least there are no girl fights involved over the last pair of shoes in the online world. [SHEFinds] Keep reading »
