So one of WPP Group's top creative directors Neil French said that women can't become top media execs because they are too busy having babies and caring for families and stuff. No time for meetings and important things! Where does one begin criticizing this position? Let's not even try. The great irony here is that Procter & Gamble is one of WPP's clients and Claudia Kotchka is P&G's chief innovation/design champion. Women make up 90% of the innovation champions inside major US companies.
I did learn something in the conversation over French's resignation this morning. In the ad world, there is something called "women creatives," as in there aren't enough women creatives around. Ridiculous. But there does seem to be a surplus of men morons.
