Boston - part II

Peter van Dyk | 13:41 UK time, Friday, 23 February 2007

We went to Boston for the Public Media conference, but it seemed foolish to go for just one programme. So today we'll be broadcasting from the Institute of Politics at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.

And in addition to the usual stations that carry us in the US, the show will go out on WBUR in Boston as well, and Bob Oakes will host alongside our very own Ros Atkins.

But what will you be talking about, I hear you ask. Well, as ever when out of the office, we'll be asking the audience what they want to talk about. But one issue we expect to come up is women in leadership, as Harvard has recently elected its first woman president.

And of course Hilary Clinton is running for US president. Not the first woman to do so, but perhaps the first to have a serious shot at victory.

Even so, just ten of the Fortune 500 companies had women as their CEOs last year. So do women need special consideration to redress this imbalance? Or do they just need to work harder?

Have your say. Here. Today.
