Where are the women?

Stocks, investments, Wall Street…these names evoke images of men. Until after our recent class trip to the NYSE and Wall Street, I didn’t realize how true these images are.

Standing in the stock exchange, I look down onto the floor and literally see two women. Two! As a student in an all-girls school this is very shocking. I have never been anywhere that has so few women. What does it take to get on the floor and why are more men getting there?
