    Reese, supporting that law is absolutely the right thing, because as long as the leadership of such companies consists mainly of men, these men will always choose (mainly) for other men as their followers. That´s nothing but a paternalistic pseudo-democratic structure, that is regenerating itself – again and again and again! Because there has been (in history) and therefore there is still an underrepresentation of women in the leadership of such companies. It´s part of “that structure”, that is repeating itself.

    Thus, only a law can break up this paternalistic pseudo-democratic structure. And that is the law you support ! This is a further necessary step for women empowerment ! Now, there shall nobody say, you don´t have a brain!
    Reese, your intelligence is brilliant !!!
