There’s been an FSM-almightly stoush in New Zealand over the last few days, about the use of quotas to achieve gender equity in Parliament. I’ve blogged about it over at my other place, and this morning, I have an opinion piece in the Dominion Post.
I’ve wrote another opinion piece for the Dom Post about a year ago, on the need for diversity in Parliament: Straight white men have lost power.
