Revealed: females make up less than 10 per cent of top 100's equity partner ranks

ever heard of breast feeding dave cote???"
Thanks for the question Marjorie however belittling you may have intended it to be.
I have in fact heard of breast feeding. In almost all cases I believe it to be the best nourishment for newborns, and only problematic when it's available to children who are 2, 3 or even 5 years old.
Yet I take your point to have something to do with women who choose to breast feed needing to take time off in order to do so.
Breast feeding is still a choice, like having a child or striving for a place at the equity table. Those may be incompatible choices and one must prioritize.
However, they are not incompatible choices by reason of breast feeding. Many have successfully raised children, many breast fed through pumping, and still others by many other means that do not include their own breast milk.
So I take your point, I completely dismiss it as far as a reason that women need to have a g'me or are entitled to access to the equity table.
