Welcome to the Gender Equity Network!
We founded this group in order to open up the discussion on what gender equality means today. Most reasonable people think men and women are of equal worth, and most of us can see examples of where an issue affecting men and women seem unbalanced or unfair. Can we correct perceived inequalities by crude measures such as quotas? More fundamentally, is our perception of inequality always accurate? At the Gender Equity Network, we think that these kinds of questions aren't discussed enough in the media and elsewhere, and we have decided therefore to attempt to expand the discourse through meetings, presentations, blogs, campaigns etc.
We hope you enjoy these discussions and find them illuminating and thought provoking. Please come along to our public meetings, and discuss the issues we raise with your friends, family and colleagues.
