…which got me wondering what the composition of boards of companies selling feminine hygiene products be. It was an interesting thought with a lot of potential to show how power plays out in our country’s system seeing as how it is fair and best in the world when it comes to acknowledging the contribution of women (as per Nirupama Rao). So, I thought I’d take a look.
P&G India board of directors has one woman, a foreigner. They sell Whisper Sanitary Napkins and Tampax – to address the tweet that started it.Kimberley-Clarke board of directors has two women. The entire board seems foreigners at a quick glance. They don’t have an India specific presence looks like. They sell Kotex Sanitary Napkins.Johnson and Johnson India limited leaders speak page for India has profiles of three men only. Can’t make out if these are all. However their international board of directors has three women.
It seems that women are under represented in the corridors of power, and it makes men jittery if this is brought up. All in all, a good subject to snoop. 🙂
