A couple days ago, Germany voted a law forcing companies to give at least 30% of the company’s board to women.

Even one company with 2/3 of the workforce being women, was criticized for not having enough women on board of directors.

Is this a good idea?

Germany’s Female Chancellor Angela Merkel, thinks so …

If equality should be approached in the strict meaning of the term, then men should get as much office and cashier jobs as women, and women should get as much hard and physically demanding jobs as men!
It’s not the case, isn’t it?Businesses know best what they need, and for what position, so governments should not force businesses to do what is counter productive!

The same with diversity in certain cases (not in general).

Why do i think forcing the companies to have more women leaders is a bad idea?
Because you simply can’t choose random people for leadership, a good manager is not a leader, a good secretary is not a leader and a good employee is not a leader!!! Only a leader is a leader!
The biggest issue that block women from becoming leaders is that they are often not taken too seriously by their fellow male and female colleagues, some choose to be tough just to make their opinions respected, and i don’t think that’s a good solution.

women men business abilities equalityAnother big issue women have, is that they have lack of self confidence, and that’s definitely not a good thing if you want to be a leader.

Yet another bad behavior when in leadership is indecisiveness, women often change their opinion a hundred time, don’t believe me? Ask any married guy!

This said, in any company, the pool of women fit for leadership is much smaller than the pool of men fit for leadership, that makes the task of finding the appropriate women to be on the board of companies much harder, and makes the process of selecting female leaders with slightly inferior leadership skills discriminating against the men working in that business.

That’s my friend is putting the feminist agenda, before the capital agenda! And that’s not how business works!

What should be done though, is forcing a 50% quota on politicians, there’s no excuse in a society where women make up half the population, that still only a small number of politicians are females, and that applies worldwide!!! Even when you have a female president, or prime-minister, still less than 20% of politicians are women !!!!

    The majority of active voters are women, and women tend to vote for men to be in power, rather than women – all other things being equal. Coupled with the fact that women – in general – tend to eschew political careers (ie women tend to prefer different careers) this explains why there are less female politicians than male politicians.

    Also you are assuming men will tend to be biased in favour of men, and women will tend to be biased in favour of women. This is not true. Studies have shown women consistently express an own-group bias (women are biased towards women generally, regardless of any benefit to themselves), whereas men do NOT have a corresponding own group bias and in fact men have a slight bias in favour of women.

    Men – unlike women – seem to be almost incapable of viewing ‘men’ as a group or promoting the interests of that group because they belong to it. I think society reflects that pretty clearly….. women are always grouping together to fight for ‘women’s causes’ but men just don’t do that sort of thing, even though there are just as many men’s causes they could fight for (many of them far more serious than women’s ridiculous causes like not being called ‘bossy’ or whatever).

    So if policy A benefits women and policy B benefits men, then women will tend to vote for policy A (even if it doesn’t benefit them directly), whereas men will NOT vote for policy B just because it happens to benefit men, and are just as likely to vote for policy A because it benefits women.

    So not only would 50% male / female politicians be going against the desires of women voters, it would also result in massive bias in favour of women – which is ALREADY what we see even as things stand today. If a politician (male or female) openly promotes ‘male interests’ s/he is seen as radical, offensive or just irrelevant…..but if they openly promote ‘women’s interests’ this is seen as politically correct.

    Even when politics was entirely male populated we STILL saw a bias in favour of women. For example when men demanded the vote they had to agree to fight wars for the state to get it. But about 50 years later when women demanded the vote they were given it (by an all male government) without any obligations whatsoever. So there’s an example of female immense privilege being granted by an all male government. This female privilege spared the lives of literally MILLIONS of young women over the last century.

    But frankly, the idea of ANYBODY (male or female) assuming the LEGAL and MORAL right to coerce, bully, kidnap,torture, murder and steal is insane. This is supposed to be the 21st century. Isn’t it time we abandoned the whole concept of ‘the right to rule over others’?
