Bring women on board

On 24 October, in a spectacular display of lack of solidarity following weeks of public discord, the college of European commissioners failed to give its backing to a draft directive presented by Commissioner Viviane Reding aimed at increasing the number of women on boards of administration across Europe.
Citing last-minute legal concerns regarding a proposal already one year and a half in the making and already so watered down as to prompt the European Women's Lobby to label it “too weak to oppose”, the Commission moved to delay the announcement of the proposal until 14 November.
The European boardroom is still a very male place. More than 65 years after the Treaty of Rome assigned the EU the task of tackling gender inequalities in employment, more than 85% of board members of private companies are male, as are 97% of chief executives.
