In today’s EOD roundup, we agree: it’s time to stop lambasting Marissa Mayer. The President and CEO of Yahoo has garnered some sharp criticism this week after banning remote work and telling the PBS-AOL series Makers that she didn’t “consider [herself] a feminist.” While both actions are problematic, it’s still important to shed light on the gendered insults being directed her way.

Walking into the pink and orange prepster heaven that is the Tory Burch headquarters in Manhattan Thursday night, you might have thought you’d stumbled into a fashion industry insiders’ cabal. In one corner of the room was the meticulously appointed J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler. In another, makeup guru Bobbi Brown, charming guests with plain-spoken industry wisdom.
You’d think it was the meeting of an insider’s club. That is, until you noticed the army of women toting wheelie luggage, who had travelled from both near and far to glean wisdom from the dozen or so business icons in the room. Because this was no fashionista playground; it was just the latest of Tory Burch’s efforts to help put more women in business.

A nationwide study from More magazine claims that 43 percent of women surveyed feel “less ambitious now than they were a decade ago” regarding their careers. This, even as women rapidly outpace men as far as college enrollment is concerned. And despite the fact that in recessionary America women are “the breadwinners or co-breadwinners in two thirds of American households,” according to the Daily Beast.
And yet we’re retreating from high-powered careers? How is this possible?

Fortune magazine has released its “40 Under 40″ list today, charting “the hottest young stars in business across the globe.” It’s a seemingly subjective list that charts the people “you’re going to be working for” someday.
And we here at Mogulite take exception to this list. Why? Because just six of the people included are women.
