British women-only club defends hiring male boss

Article here. Truth remains stranger than fiction. Excerpt:

'The founders of Britain’s first club for businesswomen defended their decision to appoint a chairman on Monday after criticism from some gender rights activists, saying men needed to be “part of the solution”.

AllBright, a London private members’ club launched in March to connect female entrepreneurs, announced on Monday it had appointed the former head of the Asda supermarket group Allan Leighton as chairman.

Members include the tech entrepreneur Martha Lane-Fox and actresses Naomie Harris and Ruth Wilson.

“AllBright is all about celebrating and championing women, but it’s also about bringing enlightened men on the journey with us,” said founders Debbie Wosskow and Anna Jones in a statement.

“Most importantly, we recognize that having Allan on board demonstrates the need for men like him to be part of the solution in helping to change the economic landscape for women - this is the only way that real change is going to happen.”'
