Well, This Puts a Dent in NOW's "Men Make More Money than Women" Theory

According to a study by The Corporate Library, female US corporate directors make more money than their male counterparts:

They may be a small minority in corporate boardrooms, but women directors typically earn more than men, a new U.S. study has found.

Female directors in corporate America earned median compensation of $120,000, based on the most recently available pay data, compared with $104,375 for male board members, research group The Corporate Library said in its annual director pay report on Wednesday.

At the same time, the study said, women in corporate boardrooms are outnumbered eight to one.

"This makes being a director one of the few jobs in the U.S. economy where the pay differential is reversed," between men and women, the study found.

The study found that overall, median total compensation for individual U.S. board members was just over $100,000, based on companies' annual proxies filed through last month. The median increase in total disclosed compensation was about 12 percent compared with the year-earlier period, the study said.

The report looked at pay data for more than 25,000 directors at more than 3,200 companies.

Are you guys fucking joking? One ceremonial position pays marginally more to women, and you're ready to declare everything OK? This post is so stupid it could only be the workings of mongoloid Kim, whom I'm reasonably sure you keep on the blog solely to insinuate that women don't deserve public positions.
