Twitter, Women, and Power
Twitter is on schedule to go public as a company next month, a sparkling symbol of innovation, technology - and stale, old thinking reflected in a board of seven white men.
Twitter users are reportedly more likely to be female, so it's bizarre to have no women on the board. But the main reason to add women - not just on Twitter's board, but in politics, business and the news media - isn't just equity. This shouldn't be seen as a favor to women but as a step that would be good for all of us.
