Is for sure that a “glass ceiling” still exists in the West. Women are responsible for the majority household purchases, but companies with targeted women products still leaded by men.

Getting to know about this issue better, this week on Thoughtful China, Laura Desmond, CEO of Starcom MediaVest and one of the youngest executives to lead a global network, speaks about how China compares to the West in women’s ability to climb corporate ladders, gain acceptance in senior business circles and reach global positions.
