The objective of this paper is to examine women relationship with other directors and firm performance.Specifically we test for the effect of percentage of women and women relationship on firm accounting performance. The sample uses 263 listed companies on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia that have women on boards from 2010 to 2012. The results show that women representations on the board do not enhance firm performance.We also find that appointment of women director based on relationship with other board members decreases firm performance. The appointment of women directors on the boards are influence by networking, relationships or family ties.Thus, these findings provide some implications for future study on women and firm performance.
