After 29 years, WSJ’s illustrious sister title Money Marketing has a female editor at the helm.
The news was heralded as the beginning of a new dawn, with one Tweeter hailing the appointment of Natalie Holt as the end of “macho” MM editors (though some questioned just how macho some of her predecessors really were).
Yet despite all the talk of shattered glass ceilings, one taboo remains: women on page 3.
Not the vocal campaign around page 3 in builders’ favourite red-top (No to page 3: because boobs aren’t news – for the uninitiated), but MM’s very own leader page.
On being greeted with Holt’s face, Yellowtail Financial Planning managing director Dennis Hall tweeted he was delighted to see the new Ed “smiling at him from page 3,” but clarified this “sounds saucier than it actually is”.
To which the only apt reply came: “You’ve got us all scrabbling around now.”
