Actually, as of the last Fortune 500 it was 495.  5 women in the first
500 and 5 in the second 500.

Of course CEO isn't the only corporate office of note.  Fortune has a
list of the top 50 women in business, and the nincompoop will be
disheartened to know that some of the countries he admires for their
sexism are also including women at the top.

Two of then head corporations in Japan, at least one in Singapore, at
least 4 in China and Taiwan, 1 from Philippines, 1 from India, 1 from
Turkey, 1 from Malaysia and several from Europe.  Of course we can't
forget the woman who heads one of the larger banks of Israel with
assets of $50 billion, which must doubly eat his gut.

Since you couldn't manage to support your own children, you cannot
claim any superior wisdom in fiscal matters.
