Norway to reserve academic posts for women....

Resorting to discrimination to make things equal is just wrong...
Minister for Research and Higher Education, Tora Aasland, is willing to break European rules by reintroducing academic positions reserved for women.

Aasland confirmed that next year's national budget will contain money earmarked academic posts reserved for women, during an annual lecture at the University of Oslo.

She pointed out that women still have far to go before they can compete on equal terms with men in academia, particularly in science and technology subjects.
