FEMINISM

Men and women, on average, tend to have different priorities and interests. This leads to gender imbalances in many areas of study and many lines of work. We do not regard this as a problem to solve, but as a natural manifestation of men and women freely following their own inclinations.Compared to women, men tend to work longer hours, are more willing to sacrifice job security for career advancement, do more dangerous jobs, and take fewer career breaks. Women often want to devote themselves more to family life. The “Gender Pay Gap” is a reflection of the natural differences between men and women, and no government action is required to address it. We do not support gender quotas in business, education or politics.

Women and men, on average, have different interests and inclinations. It is futile and counterproductive to aim to achieve numerical equality in different academic disciplines, careers and vocations. Everyone should follow their own interests, guided by their own priorities. The state should leave women and men to do what they want to do.

We have no desire to encourage women to be more like men, or vice versa. Masculinity and femininity embody complementary qualities.

The men’s rights movement raises many valid issues, but can fall into identity politics, mirroring feminism. We don’t want a battle of the sexes, but harmonious diversity.

Feminists in the past fought some grave injustices in the UK, as they do in many other countries today.
