Charles Moore in the (UK) Spectator:

The other day, I bumped into a friend on a mid-morning train to London. She is an extremely active businesswoman, and normally on impossibly early trains, so I knew something must have changed in her life. Sure enough, she said that she had left her high-powered job and was looking for new opportunities. Not an easy time, I commiserated. ‘Oh no,’ she conradicted me, ‘there’s this new rule that women have to be on the boards of all big companies, so I’m absolutely fine.’
