Do we give women leaders a hard time?

Do female leaders have a harder time than their male counterparts? Well yes, of course. There’s abundant evidence that women start their careers as equals with men, but at each successive stage of advancement fewer and fewer of them make the cut. By the time you get to board level, women comprise less than 30% of directors (even then only after some heavy NED-loading) and only 6% of FTSE 100 CEOs. They’re overused statistics, but they’re true nonetheless.
