Women don’t fare too well on the power league lists

December 8th, 2008Posted by in Journalism, Newspapers

The Observer’s Women’s Special in the Review section, spanning 80 years of history, made interesting reading over the weekend: apparently men still dominate the top levels of media, politics, finance and … church. Of note were the ‘big lists’ split into male/female ratio. Here are those relevant to the media sector (percentages refer to the female portion of the list):

• Sunday Times Rich List: 1%
Of 95 women listed in the top 1,000, 56 are half of male-female partnerships.

• Vanity Fair ‘New Establishment’ 100: 9%
Three women feature as part of male-female partnerships; only one woman – Angelina Jolie – in top ten.

• Telegraph 100 Living Geniuses: 15%
No women feature in top 30.

• Media Guardian Top 100: 21%
One woman, BBC’s Jane Tranter, in top ten.

• Entertainment Weekly 50 Smartest People in Hollywood: 24%
Two women in top 25.

• Evening Standard 1001 Powerful Londoners: 27%.
