Some years ago I owned a Jaguar, and I imagine the vast majority of buyers of Jaguars and Land Rovers are men. They should be aware that when they buy one of these cars, they’ll be financing a social engineering programme at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), which is making £3,000 sponsorships available to women only. The women they’re looking for don’t need to be studying engineering, or have the slightest interest in cars or car manufacturing.
It’s known the vast majority of female engineers who have children leave the profession, never to return. The JLR website states that almost half of female engineering students don’t take up careers in engineering or technology-related careers. The conclusion the government and companies like JLR draw is the obvious one:
We need more female engineers regardless of the cost to taxpayers, to the company, or to men who’ll be denied careers in engineering, although unemployment is a major driver of male suicide, and suicide is the #1 cause of death of young men.
Yes, that makes perfect sense.
