Two writers join me in challenging the ‘improved gender balance in the boardroom’ myth

I’m delighted to report that two fellow writers on gender-related matters have agreed to join me in challenging the ‘improved gender balance in the boardroom’ myth. The myth is, as regular readers will know, that increased female representation in boardrooms can be expected to improve corporate performance. As you will also know, the only independent (i.e. non-ideological) study into the matter – by Ken Aherne and Amy Dittmar of the Ross School of Business, at the University of Michigan – reported that increasing female representation on Norwegian boards over 2003-8 (arising as a result of legislation) actually harmed corporate performance.

The two writers are:

Steve Moxon – The Woman Racket (2008). This book is, to my mind, one of the most important books concerning the genders published in the past 20 years.

Swayne O’Pie – Why Britain Hates Men: Exposing Feminism (2011). This book – the first of a forthcoming series by “The Feminists’ Nemesis” – reveals in forensic detail how misandry (hatred of men) is central to modern feminism. Misandry is its foundation, its fuel, and its prime recruiting tool.

In my ‘open emails’ to the three speakers at the FT seminar ‘Women on Boards’ (see last post) I shall make it clear that both Steve and Swayne are joining me in challenging them.

A great start to the day, my thanks to Steve and Swayne.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
