The government of Norway is now threatening to close down any company which does not have more than 40% women in the boardrooms by 2007. Nowhere is radical feminism as strong as in the Scandinavian Peninsula and the thought of low female representation in board rooms having anything to do with sex differences in preferences or distribution of abilities rather male chauvinist discrimation is of course even more taboo than in Harvard. The Swedish government have also told companies to have more than 40% women in the boardrooms, but have not (yet) decided to impose any punishment on companies that do not comply.
