New Study Examines Effects of Increased Number of Female Executives on Lower Level Female Workers

This study is a great way to test out a few theories on the changing face of the workforce.  We just read about the difficulty women face trying to achieve higher career positions, and how mentoring has an effect on that transition.  Now, with more females in exceutive positions, they can directly and indirectly help those ladies aspiring for better employment opportunities.  I would like to see data about mentoring, and also if the increasing number of female executives has a positive effect on hiring practices and treatment of employees or jobseekers who are mothers.
