John Markoff, “Hewlett-Packard Picks Rising Star at Lucent as Its Chief Executive,” New York Times, July 20, 1999. The appointee, Carleton S. Fiorina, was quoted as having said: “I hope that we are at a point that everyone has figured out that there is not a glass ceiling. My gender is interesting but really not the subject of the story here.” Fiorina was later reported to have backed off her statement. She said she did not intend her remark to apply throughout corporate America. Reed Abelson, “A Push from the Top Shatters a Glass Ceiling,” New York Times, August 22, 1999.

New York Times, November 17, 1999. “It sounds good: the number of women who are chief executives at Fortune 500 companies has doubled the last five months. The trouble is, the number went from two to four, and isn't likely to increase significantly soon.” The number increased to five in mid–2001. Claudia H.
