The fact is that we need intelligent, hard-working and skilful people to lead the organisations that will ultimately shape the future.

Now, if a woman has those qualities, then she should be rewarded as equally as a man should be rewarded.

She shouldn't be given some kind of head start because she's a woman. Whats with all these female initiatives and clubs at university?

The first step of being treated equally is believing that you are equal; by starting all these ridiculous clubs and "female empowerment" projects, you're constantly reinforcing the fact that this is a man's world.

Britain was never a meritocracy.

The fact you are threatened by it and the rest of your post is reason enough to show there is a lack of understanding about why the need exists in the first place.

Improve your trolls.

The fact that you support it only exhibits your lack of confidence to live without the unfair advantages it gives you.
