Californian Corporations will have to take women to the boards

October 1, 2018 - By Mildred Donovan

Publicly held corporations in California will have to include into their boards more women. Governor Jerry Brown has recently signed the bill that states to include women into the boards of corporations.

California for now is the first state that prescribes all corporations held publicly to include females on the boards.

This Sunday Californian Governor Jerry Brown has signed the bill in a law, including women into the “world of top-positions in business”.

According to the new bill, by the end of the next year, all companies with executive offices in California must include at least one woman to their boards.

And by the 2021 year, companies must include two or three women minimum, depending on the size of the company and its board.

The Los Angeles Times has already calculated that this new law will affect hundreds of different companies in the state.

As for those companies who would not want to listen to the new demand, they will have to pay 100 000 dollars as the first fine for the violation of the rule, and 300 000 dollars for the second time.

While Mr. Brown has accepted the new law, he is strongly aware of all criticism behind his back. Still, he is trying to improve the situation and make everything right. Considering the last case of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, Brown says that we must to send a new message and keep fighting for equality. He sent his letter to the same USA Senate Judiciary Committee, who signed for the nomination of Kavanaugh despite allegations.
