Womens’ Day

I have just been reading on a business site that a company is making huge efforts to achieve an equal balance between male and female employees in their workforce. They complain that not enough firms are making the same amount of effort to bring this about.

My belief is, that until both male and female children are encouraged, as soon as they can understand spoken language, that if they WANT TO they can achieve any objective that they are capable of imagining, the equality situation will remain much as it is today. My own experience of life indicates that most parents, and some teachers, do not encourage our young people in this manner, therefore how are employers to easily discover those employees of either sex who can best be placed in responsible positions
