What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
Today’s list may cause, for some of you, an internal conflict to arise. Excited though you’ll rightfully be to see the PeekScore blog celebrate women who’ve risen to top of their professions, you’ll wish we weren’t also simultaneously (if only incidentally) endorsing your pet enemies of capitalism and the corporate power structure. Well, progressive reader, perhaps because we love the company for which we work, or perhaps because our own CEO (while admittedly male) is a hell of a nice person, we do not share your prejudices nor sense of regret. The fact remains, however, that even at this late date far too few women are ultimately running things (even though – as we’ve pointed out previously – they comprise over half of the species being run), and we do share in your feelings regarding that not seeming at all right. We don’t feel we’re being especially preachy in bringing this noteworthy fact to light, and we suspect that at least half of our readership will be inclined to agree.
Anyway, in keeping with our frequently choosing to stay out of things, we offer no opinion on these women nor upon the companies they lead. Some of these women are a bit beleaguered, some are nearly unconditionally celebrated, but the unifying fact is that they’re all in charge. Only a few have all that much of a social media presence, but they’re all newsworthy, and all high profile. As such, their PeekScores suggest a definite presence here in cyberspace, even if they’re too busy wheeling and dealing to tweet their days away.
Are there any female CEOs we overlooked? What are your thoughts on this list? Heck, what are your thoughts on anything at all? Let us know in the comments.
