Qual Status of professional Women in Business and Society

Itas no secret that few women hold top positions in business both in Canada and internationally. According to the Globe and Mail (2010), women account for just 17 per cent of corporate officers and 13 per cent of directors at Canadaas top companies; these numbers are equally low in other Western nations. In Norway, however, the government passed a law stating that 40% of boardroom seats must go to women (or men, in the event a boardroom was female-dominated). I want a essay to present that gender quotas for top jobs encourage equality or tokenism. And Canada should implement similar quotas for boardrooms.
