Women are 35% more likely to go to university than men

Our thanks to Francis for this. The gender gap in university attendance has hit a new high, with women being 35% more likely than men to attend university. From the article:

Ucas chief Mary Curnock Cook said poor white males should now be the focus of “outreach efforts”.

She said much the same thing last year, and precisely nothing happened, predictably. We shouldn’t be surprised at the education gender gap. The education system was changed in 1987/8 precisely to create the gap, with the replacement of ‘O’ levels by GCSEs, as William Collins explained here.

Nicky Morgan MP is the Education Secretary, and Minister for Women and Equalities. As she’s not ‘for Men’, it follows that she’s perfectly happy about the education gender gap. In June we publicly challenged Ms Morgan about the matter – here – and the response from one of her officials displayed no concern at the Department for Education about the gender gap, and therefore no plans to reduce it.

As far as feminists are concerned, the system is working just how they want it to. I predict next year’s gender gap will be yet higher, and we can be sure we’ll again be reading comments like this in our papers:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
