Men, feel the fear

Brockett, Martin
July 2008
People Management;7/10/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 14, p17
The author discusses his views on the eagerness of women to become executives in private-sector companies and city firms in particular. He shares that many male executives are scared that if women come into boardrooms, their worlds of privilege would implode, creating limitations and division when it comes to decision-making and ideas. He says that this issue only came when women realized they needed to drop their traditional role in the society.
