In California the law have obliged to include the companies of women in the boards of directors


New rules will begin to work by the end of the next year and will be obligatory for the companies whose headquarters is located in this state, including for Apple and Facebook of the Photo: depositphotos.com Is updated 22:37vlasti California have obliged all public companies which headquarters is in the territory of the state, to include at least one woman in the structure of the boards of directors. These rules have to come into force by the end of the next year. The governor of California Jerry Brown has said that to privileges which corporations so long enjoyed the end has come. And in three years the law will become even tougher: will already have to include two women in the boards of directors consisting of five people and if six people direct the company, then representatives in it has to be of both sexes equally. Penalties for violation of the law severe — 100 thousand dollars for the first fault, 300 thousand — for all the subsequent. For the state where this year have allowed not only to use but also to grow up marijuana, it is quite logical law, the Americanist Mikhail Taratuta:mikhail Taratuta the journalist "Considers California is known as one of the most liberal states which always encouraged women's movement. In this case we see very strong raising of women's movement in general in the country.

There is also the return example — the Google company which has introduced separate quotas for women even earlier and openly gave preferences to people from "the unprotected categories". The employee of the company James Deymor who hasn't agreed with such order of things was dismissed from the company, having accused of sexism. But quotas for women are and there is the true sexism, the CEO of the InfoWatch company Natalya Kasperskaya:natalya Kasperskaya the CEO of the InfoWatch company "In my opinion notes, it is harmful because it reduces quality of structure of the board of directors. Conditionally speaking if to dictate that at us, for example, the blonde, either one-armed, or the disabled person surely has to sit, then to find such person quite difficult. In my opinion, such law offends women. He doesn't lift them, and kind of lowers because they are equated, figuratively speaking, to disabled people: these silly women won't break through, so it is necessary to include them violently.
