Laura Perrins: Female quotas serve only mediocre women

Another good piece from Laura Perrins. Of course mediocre women haven’t the slightest reservation about advancing in preference to better-qualified men. They are utterly shameless, as are the men and women who facilitate all the damnable social engineering which has had such a ruinous impact on the public sector, and will in time have the same impact on the private sector.

The government is threatening to introduce gender quota legislation for FTSE350 companies in 2020 if the companies don’t ‘voluntarily’ achieve 33% female representation on their boards by then. Doubtless they’ll cravenly capitulate in the same way FTSE100 companies did in the wake of the ridiculous Davies Report (2011), which resulted in a doubling of the female representation on their boards in the space of four years to 25% in 2015 (average across the FTSE100). 96% of the new female directors were appointed as Non-Executive Directors – prestige, no executive responsibility, and good money for little effort. No wonder feminists are so keen on such initiatives.
