Three new female directors have now been appointed to the board’s compensation committee.

Now to McDonald’s (MCD), where 10 current and former female employees across the U.S. have filed sexual harassment complaints. The complaints are against the company and its franchisees. McDonald’s says it takes the allegations “very seriously,” and is “confident” its franchisees will do the same.
