The lonely life of the high-flying female

A
high-flying career can jeopardise the marriage prospects of female executives,
according to a new survey.

Director
magazine found that young female executives were not only paid less than their
male counterparts, but were also twice as likely to be divorced than men.

The
survey suggested that 52 per cent of female directors were married compared
with 82 per cent of men.

Laurel
Herman, head of image consultancy Positive Presence, told the Financial Times:
"Young women are being advised that they can be like Shirley Conran
[author and president of the Work-Life Balance Trust] and have it all, but that
is just not true."
