Momentous news.  For the first time, more than 50% of new Directors appointed to US boards in 2017 were women.  Less momentous - this increases the total female share of the S&P 500 list of Directors to... 22%.  From 21%.  Still some way to go then.

Minority representation continues to have even further to go, with only 14% of the new appointees being defined as African-American, Hispanic/Latino or Asian.
