William Collins (mra-uk): The Global Gender Gap Report

Another outstanding piece from William Collins. We’re about to add a RSS feed onto the front page of this website, so his last 10 blog pieces will be visible. In common with Herbert Purdy, all his pieces are very well worth reading. Why not leave a comment after his article, to show your appreciation?

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.

  • Guess they forgot to look in the dictionary.

  • Reblogged this on Men's Psychology and commented:
    At least they’re being honest that they consider male disadvantage as equality for women.

  • Reblogged this on Mein Senf.

  • With regard to the recent World  Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2014. The report states that,

    “the Index rewards countries that reach the point where outcomes for women equal those for men, but it neither rewards nor penalizes cases in which women are outperforming men”
    In case you failed to understand that, it continues,

    “Thus a country, which has higher enrolment for girls rather than boys in secondary school, will score equal to a country where boys’ and girls’ enrolment is the same.”
    In other words, male disadvantage = equality. It goes on; 

    “To capture gender equality, two possible scales were considered. One was a negative-positive scale capturing the size and direction of the gender gap. This scale penalizes either men’s advantage over women or women’s advantage over men, and gives the highest points to absolute equality. The second choice was a one-sided scale that measures how close women are to reaching parity with men but does not reward or penalize countries for having a gender gap in the other direction. We find the one-sided scale more appropriate for our purposes…..”

    So there we are deliberately being one sided about Equality. No doubt non of the journalists and media bothered to read this part setting out the fraudulent nature of the whole enterprise! 

  • As always Mr. Collins is right. I was so surprised I followed it up myself. Well used to twisted stats. in the pay gap and vanishing males in DV stats. I could not believe it would be so blatantly fraudulent. Yet there it was , the authors literally setting out how they cooked the books. The quotes are so Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” I get they deserved to be highlighted.
