Focusing on issues about gender gap

Friday, December 21, 2018

JERRIL Rechter (Letters, March 2) is unhappy that Australia’s “gender gap” is too wide.

Recent Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show the pay gap is 18.8 percent.

What should it be?

“Zero gap”, say gender-theory ideologues.

“100 per cent gap”, say others who think fathers should earn and mothers should mother (at home).

What do our children want?

A friend working in child-care is alarmed when the inmates call her “mummy”.

What do they call their working mothers?

I wasn’t told that.

Let’s agree men and women are equal – equal in human dignity. But identical?

Identical in the sense of women imitating men all day in the workplace? No, please.

Not every social role is equally suited to men and women …

What to do about it?

Hard to say.

Perhaps we need a very different society.
