When Judith Nelson graduated from law school in 1965, women made up only 4% of her graduating class. There were even fewer female partners at law firms. And there was a prevailing attitude that certain jobs were "women's work"--and law wasn't one of them. Now Nelson is among a small but growing number of women who have made it to the top ranks of California's biggest corporations. Women may still meet resistance in striving to make it into upper ranks, but many believe that the tide is turning.

As one of the first women to hold a position of power on Wall Street, Marion O. Sandler was notable even before she and her husband, Herbert, spent 43 years building Oakland's World Savings Bank into such a major - and ultimately controversial - adjustable mortgage lender. Sandler, the daughter of Jewish immigrants from Lithuania and Russia, exploited her keen analytic skills to become Dominick & Dominick's first female executive in 1955 and joined Oppenheimer & Co. as a savings and loan analyst in 1961.

When Marion Sandler was starting out on Wall Street 34 years ago, she told her boss that she eventually wanted to become a partner. "They laughed," she said. "In those days, there was no beating around the bush. It was very clear a woman couldn't become a partner." Sandler, at least, has come a long way. She's now co-chief executive of Golden West Financial Corp. in Oakland, a company she and her husband built up after acquiring it in 1963.

The warning flags were flying Monday at Montgomery Securities' 17th annual conference for institutional investors at the swanky but sweltering Mark Hopkins Hotel here. Despite--or perhaps because of--the heady gains in stock prices since last year's conference, the predominant sentiment among the 750 money managers who have gathered here for the four-day affair this week was one of extreme caution.

Talk about executive shuffles. Apple Computer Inc. boss Steve Jobs, who topped the Los Angeles Times' executive pay survey last year, is next to last on the new list after his compensation plunged from $74.8 million to just $1. That's barely enough to download one song on an iPod. But according to federal filings, Jobs still owns 10 million shares of the Cupertino, Calif.
