If You Are A Woman, Head to the Midwest

In reading through the recent Fortune article, The 50 Most Powerful Women, I noticed that half of them were in the Midwest. This included:

#2 Irene Rosenfield    CEO, Kraft
#3 Pat Woertz            CEO, Archer Daniels Midland
#7 Susan Arnold        President, Proctor & Gamble
#8 Oprah Winfrey      Chairman, Harpo
#9 Brenda Barnes     CEO, Sara Lee

This is a pretty amazing feat to have so many female CEO's & Presidents here given the historical glass ceiling in the executive suites. Hopefully, this is a sign of further good things to come for all of our daughters…especially if you live in the Midwest!
