Women are increasingly attaining the reins of power in accounting firms, accounting for about 20 percent of firm partners.

Still, it is an improvement over a decade or two ago. In just the last couple of years, two Big Four firms have appointed female CEOs: Cathy Engelbert at Deloitte, and Lynn Doughtie at KPMG.
