When Urban Outfitters CEO Richard Hayne nominated his wife Margaret to its all-male board, it set off a firestorm of controversy. The state treasurer of Connecticut may have put it best, calling it "cynical," an "insult" and "bogus," according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. A company that caters much of its products to women should probably have more women making top-level decisions.
