Gender Issues Around Covid
I can understand the reluctance to discuss covid and the need to be careful about how this is discussed.
I’ve seen the situation censured twice recently.
However there are gender issues as we can see in the recent research I posted.
If your Covid comments aren’t focused and genuinely related to gender best they be taken somewhere else where they might be appreciated more.
When we look at the PSA there is probably still around the 80% female membership mark and I am well aware that they have a very charismatic approach to the PM – and follow happily with her instructions.
You will have noticed this week though how the PM has shifted her stance away from what the medical director is saying to fluffy rhetoric – that should tell you something.
In the male dominated industries particularly transport and construction male workers are very reliant on information from their employers.
You may have seen a recent video to the construction industry asking employers to be up to date with the changing landscape as there is an awareness Covid-19 may have long term effects on heavy industry.
We’ve reached a point, not in NZ but overseas where research is coming available within a time frame 6 – 12 months ahead of any research we could possibly have here in NZ.
Lancet for example has dropped its paywall until 31 December and invited the publication of any good research or professional opinion supporting the current need to have up-to-date information easily accessible.
I’m quite sure there will be more gender specific information but you will most likely need to be actively involved in searching through overseas media to find that.
That’s no excuse for baseless rhetoric because you disagree on some other basis.
Play the game. If you’ve got other gender specific information about Covid we should consider that.
