I’ve just had the massive fortune to be interviewed (and Twitter live interviewed – a first!) for the great Adwomen blog. Interestingly a lot of the questions from the readers were very much about female role models in the industry, and why I think there are so few senior ladies.
Unlike Neil French (RIP), I don’t feel like it’s simply about being crap, but rather the massive difficulties of no female role models. Plus the difference in self-promotional desires, and the brash risk-taking associated with the male ego. Terrible generalisation. There are a whole range of personalities out there but there’s no denying that we’re missing an incredible traunch of cool, powerful ladies somewhere. Let’s change it. Fight the power, and all that.
