Abstract

Women are significantly underrepresented in senior public and private appointments across the UK such that, on average, women hold 26 per cent of top jobs in the public sector and 10 per cent of top jobs in business (Commission, 2011). According to the Equality and Human Rights Commission landmark Sex and Power report, there are 5,400 women missing from senior appointments in all sectors across the UK (Commission, 2011). Fundamentally, Britain is a country largely run by men (Coalition, 2013).
