Mind the gender gap

Published:

Professor of Politics, Professor Rainbow Murray appeared on Euronews Tonight to discuss the time it will take for society’s gender gap to be bridged. Professor Murray said: “Definitely within Europe things are moving in the right direction so there is some good news there. I would always apply some certain caveats this includes the fact that we are still a long way from gender parity. If you look at the UK for example we see that we had 33 per-cent women in Parliament, but that still means that there are two men for every woman and most of those women in parliaments are in opposition parties. Which means they have no potential under the current government to get into government and be a future leader.”
