    OK, so I’ve just clicked on the link, and because I’m obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed, I’ve chosen to wade through Tracey Spicer’s paper “Ways Forward for Women in the Workforce.” I only got a few paragraphs in (yes, I skipped a couple) until the first ‘positive stereotypes are good’ but ‘negative stereotypes are eeeevil’ meme (about selective subjects, that is). Without reading any further, let me summarise the paper thusly: Women are a positive asset to any business, particularly when the remuneration is impressive, simply because of their bits. That’s it. You can thank me later.

Diversity of staff is the key to business. Not because of the contents of the package, but because of the wrapping. Quotas for women and the sterilisation of males is the answer, apparently. That’s it. You can thank me later.
