Women are not progressing in the corporate world because men are. In other words, until women address inequality on the home-front, there just aren't enough hours in the day to do it all. I agree that 24/7 work culture contributes to these numbers, but that's because we don't expect men to even consider balancing work and family the way we expect it of women. Until the 'second shift' problem is addressed at home, companies can do all they can at work, and the problem still won't be solved.


I believe it would be a "second shift" choice. No one holds a gun to anyone's head and tell them how to live. I do agree that women are woefully and disappointingly underrepresented in corporate governance though.
