Scrap women’s affairs ministry – ACT
The ACT Party has a way to deal with John Tamihere’s suggestion for a ministry of men’s affairs — even things up by scrapping the Ministry of Women’s Affairs.
ACT MP Heather Roy said Mr Tamihere was right when he said men were not treated the same as women.
“But rather than setting up a ministry of men’s affairs we should even things up by simply scrapping the Women’s Affairs Ministry,” she said in a statement.
“The ministry does nothing for women but tell them that the white, middle-class heterosexual male is to blame for everything — all the while treating women with patronising sympathy and telling them they need closer relationships with the Government.”
