Gender and Politics in the media

Beyonce: We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life.

Why don’t we ask about the ideal working hours for fathers? Women’s Agenda It is something of an occupational hazard of working on a publication like Women’s Agenda that I am, quite often, drawn into discussions about gender equality in social settings. Sometimes these conversations become a little adversarial. When they do, the point of tension inevitably arises around whether gender inequality is really an issue.

At this point I tend to resort to facts and figures. The gender pay gap. The disproportionate number of women in senior roles in government and in business. The gender gap in workplace participation as demonstrated by the World Economic Forum. Sometimes people are surprised by these figures and sometimes people disregard them. In either case, at this point, I usually try to finish the conversation and move into other terrain.
