Women on corporate boards = Higher stock prices

The Credit Suisse Research Institute issued a research report that showed companies with over $10 Billion in market capitalization and have women on their boards have stock outperformance over  companies that do not have women on their boards over a six year period from 2005. In fact,  companies with women on boards outperformed by 26%. Sounds like a smart investment decision to me.
