A bit off course, but yet another female M.P. only this time a British one rabbiting about sexism, call it what you will,which just goes to prove that it isn't only an Australian thing.
British Liberal Democrat M.P. (Miss, Mrs. Ms.) ? Jo Swinson, minister for Women and Equalities has just suggested that women should ask male colleagues how much they earn as a way for women to achieve equal pay with males.
A couple of points ...
Is there a minister for men and equalities?
Her statement came during an interview with Elle magazine, is there a Lui magazine, staffed entirely by blokes naturally?
If I, a man, was ever asked by another male colleague what I earned I would tell him to please to mind his own business .... but a tad stronger language. Would it be acceptable to tell a female colleague to F.O.Q.?
