Avoiding it in order “to tackle more serious matters” would be to miss one of the most serious matters of all – witnessing an exercise, on a world stage, in gender disparity. Where else is this revealed, in such magnitude?

It isn’t enough – and it would be a false attempt – if Davos simply expands its panel appeal to women, and Rana and Megan have it absolutely right–this kind of quota-filling misses the point entirely. It would be much better to observe the disparity, take copious notes of the areas that are women-poor, and take the lessons back into one’s communities and countries where one can work on improving the environment for women’s participation in business, science, economics, politics, you-name-it. Then perhaps we’ll achieve a true parity.
