Finance is still a men world. It's true that some large financial corporations have women at top executive functions and there is quite a parity in big(s) bank(s) at all level but women often don't access to the board.
It's a pity because women are better than men when we speak about Finance.
A little example but I could multiply this example with other(s) sector(s)
A study indeed has shown that hedge funds managed by women have better performances than ones managed by men.
