More on quotas

I was on Radio NZ Nights last night, talking about quotas for women.

You can access the podcast here: Radio NZ Nights: Pundit – Feminism.

It was a challenging discussion. But fun!

    Fascinating the research to which you referred about the *perception* of how many women are in a group versus how many are actually present. Apparently, the research indicates that, even when only one-third of the group is women, the perception is that they are in the majority. Can you share the research source? I would like to read further. The numbers for the U.S. Congress are far worse – at under 20% – and, of course, we have never had a woman president as your country has. I agree with you that, unfortunately, it is going to take a very, very long time to achieve parity.
