Good news: a third of all boardroom positions at Britain’s biggest companies are now held by women. The target was set in the Hampton-Alexander review and has been hit a year early.

The latest report has found that 33 per cent of board seats at FTSE 100 companies are occupied by women, up from 12.5 per cent in 2011, when the initiative started. There are no longer any male-only boards.

It’s progress – but it’s still not good enough.
