The number of female directors has rocketed over the past five years.

Larger firms have recorded the highest percentage increase, but half of all small companies now have a female director, according to company data specialist Experian.

Experian’s Max Firth said smaller companies were clearly the driving force for female directors, but larger companies’ efforts to increase the number of female directors had made a significant difference.
