Should I promote a female to take an important in my company situation?

All my current senior executives are male. However I wish to be seen as promoting equality by considering to promote a female executive who have just join your company not too long ago to that senior level. I think she is well qualified for the job and has people skill, but everyone knows that there are more capable male staff who are better and more capable than her to take that job. My senior executives have indicated that they are not happy about my plan. What can I do now ?
