Laura Perrins gives Owen Jones a pasting

Enjoy (video, 6:58). The programme is The Daily Politics, the presenter the relentlessly pro-feminist Jo Coburn. My own appearance on the programme (in January 2013, a month before we launched J4MB) is here (video, 11:06). I was appearing on behalf of Campaign for Merit in Business.

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.

    Enjoyed. One point. And I know I’m a bore on this. but the interviewer said the “Nordic” countries have considerably less pay gap. This wasn’t challenged. Somehow we need to get it into our heads that this is simply not true and point it out at every opportunity.
    Sweden like the Uk is in the middle of the league tables on gender pay gaps, there is no big difference now, for all the supposed Swedish wonderfulness. If we can make this point repeatedly. because why introduce “Nordic Policies” if they, on the evidence, wouldn’t make much if any change?
    I do apologise but comments were closed on this over at TCW. It drives me batty too often everyone assumes that the Nordic model is expensive but does “work”. Yet the facts show they both have similar pay gaps and greater occupational segregation and fewer senior women in business. So their polices fail even on their own terms !!!!!

      We need to get it into our heads that ‘the gender pay gap’ does not exist in the ‘U’K. What does exist is a lifetime’s earnings disparity due entirely to women’s lifestyle choices. Women generally earn less over a lifetime because generally they choose to do less work than men; they are not paid less for the work they actually do. From my experience, I suspect that were a time and motion study done on the relative output of men and women we might well find that women are paid considerably more per unit of work than their male colleagues performing the same work.
