Naureen Rizvi says she was disappointed when only four women cracked the top 20 spots on Ontario's annual Sunshine List, even as the province says it's "on track" to close the wage gap.
"I always feel it's not fast enough," Rizvi told CBC Toronto at a Ryerson University event focused on women's economic empowerment.
"I don't accept that it takes 90 years to get to parity."
Parity is the key. Personal interest and effort be damned.
The province has a strategy to deal with this, which includes setting targets for the number of women it wants at top levels.
I've written this before:
What's strange is that such convenient "logic" is not applied to other male-dominated fields. Let's look at a few penis-powered professions in Canada:
- Heavy-Duty Equipment Mechanics
- Truck and Bus Mechanics
- Steamfitters and Pipefitters
- Electrical Power Line Workers
- Refrigeration and A.C. Mechanics
- Plumbers, Pipefitters and Gas Fitters
- Automotive Service Technicians
The percentage of men in all the professions listed above is at least 98%! These are catastrophically serious cases of the Insufficient Vaginas Problem.
Are the feminists going to set quotas for the mentioned professions? Why not?
