    This is according to Judy Haiven at a Dal forum on misogyny.

    Women should be allowed to speak first in classroom discussions to stop men from "monopolising these forums".

    This isn't the first time such a rule has been suggested.

    Women already outperform men in public examinations. Surely men need extra help to combat the entrenched systemic misandry in the matriarchal educational environment? This suggestion would simply increase women's educational privilege even further.

    To be honest, using the typical feminist logic, we should really have a quota system for public examination results, whereby the top grades have to be equally distributed between men and women, regardless of actual exam performance.

    Haha thanks, this actually did make me laugh. PRSOM - I get where you're coming from but not all women think in the same way and I disagree with you. That being said, I'm still against the 'Women should speak first' idea.

    This attitude perpetuates a lot of people's educational life, and I think we should stick with our gender neutral rule at the moment.

    I'd actually like to see a 'different but equal policy' with a certain amount of women being necessary to address women's issues, it's rather clear to me that social qualities are just that, qualities we get from socialising and not biology.

    The only way to gender equality is to treat all genders equally, equal oppportunities and equal rewards, this plan makes absolutely no sense and only further perpetuates the idea that women are victimised. Dumb idea

    The only place a woman should be able to speak is in the kitchen to let the men know dinner is ready.

    Surely the men would also have to be in the kitchen?
