Despite gains in the last half century, women remain significantly underrepresented in positions of power across government, business, law and academia. That's according to Stanford Law School Professor Deborah Rhode, who reports that women constitute 19 percent of Congress, only 17 percent of law partners and a mere four percent of Fortune 500 CEOs.
