Female logic

Guardian columnist Jackie Ashley joins the debate on City bonuses this morning with her piece "To chop City bonuses, start by cutting the testosterone".
Argues Ashley: "A more modern approach would be to widen the pool of people in financial services to include more women, and to pay them fairly, without ludicrous bonuses, in an atmosphere more like the rest of the working world."
Sadly, there's no room in Jackie's piece to highlight one female executive who is paid rather well herself. Step forward Carolyn McCall, who trousered a bonus of £385,000 last year on top of a £424,000 salary, in her role as chief executive of, er, the Guardian Media Group.
