Facebook, the most popular social networking site in America, is under fire from womens groups because its board of directors consists entirely of white men.
With the company about to go public in May, advocates are beginning to pressure the company to diversify its leadership.
On Thursday the womens rights group Ultraviolet began circulating a petition calling on Facebook to appoint female board members. According to the group, the lack of women is nothing short of shameful.
Facebook owes it success and makes a ton of money off of its women users. Women are responsible for nearly two-thirds of the sharing that happens on the site. In addition, women account for more than 70% daily fan activity on the site which is a huge source of revenue for the company said Ultraviolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary.
Facebook has a problem and they need to solve it before they go public. Mark Zuckerberg should live up to his companys mission statement and appoint at least one woman to the board today.
In a letter to its 300,000 members, Ultraviolet pointed out that the majority of Facebook users (58 percent) are women.

Facebook was created by the college boys who are its board of directors. If there was a woman in the founding group then she’d be on the board.
Putting a woman on the board would be an empty accomplishment as she would have done nothing to earn her place there.
Facebook was also created almost entirely by white men. How about this: women, you start your own website and then you can put whoever you want on the board.

A woman, a black person and a Mexican walked into a bar...
It’s very popular and successul, especially among women. Shareholders are happy. What benefit would be derived from wrecking a great board for the purpose of gender and racial beancounting?
The politics of the Facebook founders aside...What are those politics?
You'd think two of them would see the first one walk into it and be able to avoid the damn thing. Was it dark out? Or are they all blind?
