Women make up 51 percent of the population, but according to a new study by Catalyst, 85 percent of companies in the Fortune 500 ranking have no women on their governing boards. That means 85 percent of companies, including Gap Inc, Fidelity, and Dick's Sporting Goods don't have women contributing to their board-level leadership.

"Corporate America needs to get 'unstuck' when it comes to advancing women to leadership," said Ilene Lang, Catalyst president and chief executive officer. "This is our fifth report where the annual change in female leadership remained flat. If this trend line represented a patient's pulse, she'd be dead."
