Stop Changing Women – Change Organisations Instead

Men seem to dominate decision-making positions. Even in schools or hospitals, where 80% of staff are women, men dominate senior management positions. Many people still believe that perhaps men deserve it. The argue men are more ambitious, work harder, have less of a focus on their family or are just better at business and decision-making.

However, when one looks at the figures, it’s easy to see that’s not the […]

The latest video from the UN Free & Equal campaign, “The Price of Exclusion”, highlights the social and economic damage caused by discrimination against LGBT people globally.

According to studies carried out in the United States, the United Kingdomand Thailand, between half and two thirds of LGBT students are regularly […]

Women paying for a lack of child maintenance as Australian Family Services Legislation fails them

If you have ever had to arrange child maintenance for your children after a separation or divorce you will have first hand experience of our difficult it is and how flawed the Australian Family Services Legislation actually is.  It assumes that the women will be the primary caregiver, which is not a problem because this is usually true.  The problem exists when men are able to walk […]
