The supervisory boards are becoming a bit more feminine, but little is still going on in the executive boards. Too many companies continued to plan completely without women leaders, criticizes Minister Giffey - and threatens noticeable sanctions.

The proportion of women on the management boards of large German companies has increased slightly - but many companies continue to plan with “women-free” board members. According to a current evaluation by the organization "Women in the Supervisory Boards" (Fidar), at the end of April almost every third supervisory board position in the 188 largest listed German companies was held by a woman. The men dominated the board with almost 90 percent. Compared to the previous year, the proportion of women in both categories only increased by a maximum of 1.5 percentage points.

COVID-19 increases risk for Canada's 'invisible' homeless women: study

  COVID-19 increases risk for Canada's 'invisible' homeless women: study OTTAWA — A new research project shows women experiencing homelessness in Canada are largely invisible and falling through major gaps in support systems — and into dangerous situations. The study, led by the Women's National Housing and Homelessness Network, says the scope is dramatically underestimated because women are more likely to rely on precarious and sometimes dangerous support, such as by sleeping on couches or trading sex for housing. This means the scale of homelessness among women, girls and gender-diverse people is larger than official estimates would suggest.

At the same time, according to the survey, 75 corporations are planning to continue with executive floors without women - including the Dax 30 company Heidelberg Cement, the Dax 30 climber Deutsche Wohnen and Delivery Hero, Hello Fresh and Rocket Internet.

Many companies do not take advantage of women

The government therefore wants to further increase the pressure on the economy. "Far too many companies are targeting zero for the board - so they have zero ambitions," criticized Minister for Women Franziska Giffey (SPD). The corona crisis proves that many women in management positions acted calmly, pragmatically and goal-oriented. "Too many companies don't seem to want to take advantage of women," complained Giffey.

She demanded that companies with four members of the executive board must in future appoint at least one woman to the board. If you continue to plan without women and do not give a plausible reason for this, you should expect noticeable sanctions. "It is time to increase the pressure, I will do everything in the federal government to get here," Giffey promised. It presented a draft law months ago, but an agreement with the coalition partner Union is still pending.

percentage of women that have complied with a partner's sexual request when they did not want is much less common and is motivated by a sadistic desire to sexually torment and mistreat the women in the workforce that had been pressured to cooperate sexually in order to be treated well.

There is already a quota for women on supervisory board posts: Since 2016, companies of a certain size - generally with 2,000 or more employees - have to fill vacant supervisory board posts with women until at least a 30 percent share is reached. For around 4,000 other companies, the law provides for itself to set targets for the proportion of women on the board and in other management bodies.

women quota works

This quota shows the first results: The companies that are subject to it have significantly more female supervisory boards. According to Fidar, an average of 35.2 percent women work here - in the other companies only 22.8 percent. Quota companies also set far more ambitious goals than the other companies.

Fidar President Monika Schulz-Strelow called for the "red card" for companies that continue to plan without women on the management level. "The time for appeals is over," she said. "If the companies continue to refuse to strategically plan with women in the management, a quota for the board level would be the logical consequence." dpa
