Rebecca Morse: Here’s why quotas won’t fix gender gap | Messenger -g-icon-error cloudy-day nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right nav_small_right 0A0871E9-1636-49F4-9
When the Australian head of government recently met in Canberra, there was only one woman among the nine leaders, the prime minister of Queensland, Annastacia Palaszczuk.
If there is a glimmer of hope here, at least one time is the person who is queuing up to go to the toilet.
Within a few days, Labor leader Bill Shore promised that half of his party\'s members would be women within 10 years.
Christopher Pyne, a member of the SA Liberal Party, also acknowledged the importance of attracting more women to Parliament to ensure that our politicians accurately represent the people.
So, ladies, before you go through the underwear drawer and look for an old maternity dress that you\'re eager to burn, when you question what happens to the feminist struggle of our predecessors, let\'s take a step back, seize this rare bipartisan support and consider how to achieve this goal, and it is earlier than 2025.
Unfortunately, I do not believe that many women, especially those with children, will find politics an attractive career choice in their current state, given the experience of our first female prime minister and the relentless time and travel involved.
Jumping into a helicopter and getting the kids to bed in time may not be OK.
Not only politically, but more fair gender is still there --represented.
There are more men managing top Australian companies than women.
Note that Peters is also good at making pajamas and ice
Cream, so we women don\'t need to hate all the cream.
Who raised the ice?
I was hungry when I tried to address the gender difference in the Australian workplace.
The word \"q\" appeared in the recent debate, which is a possible solution.
I don\'t think the quota is the answer.
I am not an advocate of reverse discrimination, and in order to reach a goal, I have ignored a man who is in favor of a woman.
I am concerned that these policies may cause discontent among male workers and have the potential to have women labeled as \"symbolic women.
This will not make it easy for the above-mentioned women to play this role, and may also prevent other women from pursuing similar progress.
Some women are lucky enough to combine mother-to-home business.
Some of the clever wooden trees decided that they should be called \"mumpreneurs \".
Does this mean that when Peppa Pig Fly and mother run the country, she will be called the prime minister, the mother is in charge of the board, the chairman, the mother leads the police force the one thing that women are best at is that it is moretasking.
I think you could be a mother and an entrepreneur without the invention of Frankenstein --like buzz word.
Finding ways to help mothers achieve a fabulous work/life balance through flexibility and understanding is the best way to attract and retain women in senior positions in Parliament and the business community.
Such serious brownie points flow to Toop & Toop, a property company in South Australia, which has just opened a live nursery to support working parents.
I want to pop up on your business day, give a quick hug and submit a progress report on the macaroni necklace, which will improve productivity and job satisfaction more than smoking or coffee breaks.
I have three daughters, and now they just want to be pop stars or fairies, and all the signs point to the middle child who joined the nudist colony.
But no matter how they choose to live, I want them to have as many opportunities as possible to achieve their goals, just like the Peters people in their class.
I\'m going to eat ice.
Cream in My Pajamas
