A woman's role is in the .....

Well yesterday was International Women's Day, and now it has been and gone and we all survived the rush to jump on the feel good band-wagon.
I just hope I come out of today's comment unscathed.

Often this issue of women's roles and representation comes up and we ask: Should women make up half or quarter or one third or some quota figure of the membership of company boards, Members of Parliament or even Ministers and other senior public positions.

Firstly let me say I'm not in favour of quotas that will determine positions are determined by anything other than merit for either men or women, or for people with certain coloured skin or places of birth what is the point of that?

Positions of merit should be determined by merit, not by quotas or token affirmative action appointments that basically say … you aren't up to it but because you are a women you get the promotion over others more capable....

.... Turn It Up.
