Britain's economy will Ã¢â‚¬ËœfailÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ unless more women are promoted into boardrooms, the Prime Minister warned yesterday.
David Cameron said that business leaders had not made Ã¢â‚¬ËœsufficientÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ progress in ensuring women get top jobs.
He will today look at controversial plans for so-called Ã¢â‚¬Ëœgolden skirt quotasÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, which would force business leaders to ensure that women are fairly represented in the boardroom.
The Government has already called for firms to more than double the number of women in boardrooms by 2015, but these quotas are voluntary.
Ministers have said that a minimum of 25 per cent of a companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s executives should be female.
However, women currently make up just 15 per cent of FTSE 100 directors.
(which, incidentally, is total nonesense and in my view positive discrimination)
Can you think of any females you'd like to see take over the England manager's job?
Oh, and the fact that they may be required to run around in tight shorts should not necessarily be considered a suitable qualification
