An old trick of the hard left was to no platform people they disagreed with and of course those hard left anti-male feminists are now in positions of power and authority within the state and the third sector. Their tentacles reach everywhere.
Third Sector magazine broke this story today:
A conference on the future of fundraising organised by Giles Pegram and Adrian Sargeant has been cancelled after controversy arose over the gender balance of its line-up of speakers.
The one-day event, entitled The Summit: Raising the Extra Billions, was to feature nine male speakers, including Sargeant, professor of marketing and fundraising at Plymouth Business School, and Pegram, a fundraising consultant and former fundraising director at the NSPCC. Jen Shang, a professor in philanthropic psychology at the University of Bristol – and Sargeant’s partner – was the only woman involved.
This of course shows that those in the charitable sector have no idea about meritocracy and openly want to create a quota system - it is a McCarthyite obsession where they see communists misogyny everywhere - even where it clearly does not exist. Any man that is a success must have walked over the carcasses of women to get there.
There of course is the usual hypocrisy from the likes of Charity Chicks ( a website itself based on solely on gender division - what would they say if there was a site called Charity Blokes?) who try and dress their gender one-up-man-ship in the name of equality.
The other hypocrisy is that there are conferences, events and initiatives where nearly all the speakers are women. What is the view of Charity Chicks to this? No one complains when speakers are all women because anti-male women see it as a victory while many women and men are only concerned about the quality of the speakers not what gender they are.
