  1. I would be interested to know if there has ever been in the history of the world a more tangible step than the liberation of Iraq and Afghanistan to move towards Ms. Whelan’s objective?

  2. Thanks to Mr. Clackum for asking my question. Ms. Whelen made a very good point about the backslide in Afghanistan, however, she didn’t answer my question. You know the saying about a journey of 1000 miles beginning with a single step. In my opinion, it was a giant step and like the first step of a 1000 mile journey it was also the hardest. I just don’t see how the dramatic changes in the Middle East shouldn’t be acknowledged in the context of this discussion.

  3. I think that the leaders and CEOs of any company should reflect the composition of their clients (which includes women and minorities) but I don’t really buy into the idea that adding women to managerial positions will necessarily make the business work better or improve long term productivity. 67% better-standing financial institutions (with 1/3+ women on the board) isn’t that far from 50%.
