Advertising Executive Resigns Over Sexist Remark

Neil French, the worldwide creative director at WPP Group, resigned yesterday over remarks he made about women at an industry event on October 6.  A female audience member asked him why there weren't more high-ranking women in creative agency positions.  Mr. French replied that women "don't make it to the top because they don't deserve to," saying their roles as caregivers and childbearers prevented them from succeeding in top positions.  For more, see the New York Times article by Julie Bosman.
