Saatchi boss Kevin Roberts resigns

Our thanks to Stuart for this. From the article:

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Monday, Kate Stanners, global chief creative officer at Saatchi and Saatchi, rejected the suggestion that women lacked ambition – saying Mr Roberts’s comments had upset a “huge” number of employees.
She said women “don’t bail out, and do want the top jobs”.

Ms Stanners is talking utter nonsense. Some women might want top jobs, but (with few exceptions) they don’t want the years of grinding effort and sacrifice that are usually required to get the top jobs on merit. Hence the need for positive discrimination, so they can land the jobs whilst working and sacrificing less than their male colleagues – the ‘Wimbledon effect’. She needs to read The Sexual Paradox by Susan Pinker, a Canadian psychologist (sister of Steven Pinker). It fully bears out the truth of Kevin Roberts’s remarks.

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.
