The article reports on the condition of women executives in the U.S. in 2005. A census found that the average Fortune 500 company had nearly 22 corporate officers, but women made up only 3.6 percent of this group. Some companies had fewer than three women corporate officers. Despite the influx of women with master of business administration degrees, men still dominate corporate America.
