Female CEOs more likely to be sacked than male peers

This is according to a study from the University of Alabama, in which researchers searched through media reports to compile a database of CEOs who were dismissed between 2000 and 2014. "We classify a CEO departure as a dismissal when it is reported that the CEO is fired or forced out or resigns or leaves as a result of policy differences or pressure," the researchers explained.

The research reveals that 2,416 CEOs left their positions during that time, with classified 641 as dismissals.
