  1. Niall Kiernan Says:

    No. All this is just tilting at windmills. The issue is largely illusory. There are many reasons women would choose not to enter such a demanding role.

    Furthermore, applications to such posts by women is roughly to the same ratio to appointees.

    Whats wrong with the best candidate gets the job? our minister is just virtue signaling.

    Definitely no.
