“Apple’s far from the most diverse company on the planet — and people are starting to take notice,” Damon Beres reports for The Huffington Post.
“In a Wenesday [sic] interview with HuffPost Rise, women’s rights activist Cherie Blair criticized Apple’s very male leadership,” Beres reports. ‘It makes me want to say to him [Apple head Tim Cook] that I can’t believe he’s so shortsighted,’ Blair said.”
Beres reports, “‘Eighty percent of consumer spending is done by women,’ she went on to say. ‘To ignore their perspective is a very dangerous thing for any business.'”

MacDailyNews Take: Apple most certainly does not ignore the female perspective.
To state otherwise is either stupid or disingenuous.
