Nicola Horlick is not a happy woman. Remember her, the woman who said women could have it all? She is upset with the media for highlighting her losses in the Madoff scandal. She thinks it is sexist that she has been singled out and believes it is because she is female. She points out that her fund lost "only" £13 million, which is admittedly a trifling sum compared to others.
I suspect the truth may be different. If I edited a newspaper I too would have highlighted her losses. Not because she is a woman, but because she is one of the few people in finance that most people have ever heard of.
She got this unwelcome publicity because in the past she has made a career out of courting the media. And I'm afraid, as I have sometimes found to my own cost (yes, I'm talking about you, Richard Kay) you have to take the rough with the smooth.
Bleating about sexism may buy you a few more column inches, but it won't win you any sympathy.
