Pay equity, violence against women

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:12 am Mon 15th May 2006

New Zealand rates well in improving the status of women but more needs to be done in the areas of violence against women, and pay and employment equity, a new report says.

Ms Dalziel said the level of violence against women in New Zealand was “intolerable”.

Ms Dalziel said the Government was addressing these issues but in most cases attitudinal change was required “which the Government cannot legislate”.

I wonder if women actually get a say in their status, or are they just expected to comply with feminist expectations of how they should live their lives.


  1. breaking news!! all violence is intolerable…..not just violence against women

  2. Yes Mark, totally on the button!

    Also If I made the employment choices women made I’d expect to get paid the same as them.
    I’d expect to enjoy a less stressful life and greater longevity.
    In turn that would mean being carried by the taxpayer for a longer period of retirement.
    It would also mean I had much closer relationships with friends and family, and subsequently more emotional support.
    I don’t make those choices and I don’t bellyache about it either, unlike Dykeson.
    She needs to get over her stupid simplistic feminist model of ‘equity’.
    That’s the real attitude change that needs to take place IMO.

  4. Perhaps Doll’szeal was referring to women’s violence against women –,2106,3667957a10,00.html

  5. Women, like Men are being manipulated and have been for generations to toe the party line.

    I will lay odds that its mainly MEN who write the Womens Refuge funding Cheques even though there is much evidence Womens Refuge is all to often destructive to our Biological-FAMILYS

    We must stand united as INDIVIDUALS

    Speak our Hearts

    That is the Heart uneffected by propaganda if its still possible to reach it

  6. I remember vividly and posted at the time of some fem fest in WLG where the fem spokesfem was harping on about how now that women were making inroads to higher positions how wrong it was that they were dieing of more stress related symptoms etc etc. golly gosh go figure dip shit. you wanna play in the big sandpit of life you better be prepared for it eh? so it seems fems want more jobs that males previously had but dont want all the crap that comes with them. how bloody typical is that. And the other day I saw some fem harping on about how on 12% of directors were women bla bla bla. well what about how .1% of rubbish collectors are women or sewer pipeline techs or miners or whatever. You cant be selective now. you want equality you cant just take the cherry jobs. or can you? anything goes it seems with these deluded types.
