RAF nurse who treated wounded soldiers awarded £560,000 compensation after suing Ministry of Defence for sex discrimination when she was passed over for promotion because she was female

After the last blog post, about a common-sense verdict in a sex discrimination case, it’s back to business as usual. Female tribunal judge hands £560,000 of taxpayers’ money (72% of it paid for by men) to another woman.

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.

  • This is an outrageous case. If you read the article you will find that no one other than the judge claimed that gender was an issue. The RAF preferred the man because he is a doctor, whereas the woman complainant is a nurse. I presume there is nothing illegal in giving preference to a doctor over a nurse – so the judge made it into a gender issue so as to be able to award compensation.
