From NYT's column on women and Wall Street:
...Morgan Stanley has but one senior woman executive: Ruth Porat, a longtime firm veteran who was recently appointed as chief financial officer. She has been an outspoken advocate for the hiring and promoting of more women on Wall Street.
“One of the biggest problems women have is they work really hard and put their heads down and assume hard work gets noticed,” Porat has said.
“And hard work for the wrong boss does not get noticed. Hard work for the wrong boss results in one thing — that boss looks terrific and you get stuck.”
