Quotas always work......

They do. One thing that I realized over time is how important representation is. Try to notice how many things you avoid doing because you don't see someone like yourself doing it. At least for me, there are lots of them. Giving women and minorities a chance to participate in these activities will encourage younger generations to be more open about women in the workforce, and this is especially important in places where this is a taboo.

Yes, it is true that they will take the place of someone who may be more qualified, but it is also true that this is an investment towards the future of the other 50% of the population who don't get to have these roles just because "they are jobs for men".

I think people should be elected solely on qualifications and merit and by nothing else.

Absolutely. The thing about this is that if women have been historically discriminated, how do we know if those women have the qualifications? Hopefully there is a plan to ensure that’s the case, or this policy will fall apart.

Do you think it's impossible to find qualified women to fill 30% of place in power ? You could fill 50%, and even 100% of those with qualified women. Because no matter the gender, there will be qualified people to hire if you look for them with no bias. What's important here is to give more opportunites to women to work in key positions. To give them more representation and a say in how society should be shaped. Eventually, things will become balance in the future and no quota will be necessary.

I agree, most men aren't qualified to represent women. Men can be really dumb towards women. Especially the closeted gay religious zealots. 30% representation is really the lowest standard. It's not great. We obviously need representation and having women around helps men be less gross. To each other and to women.

So now despite probably having way more competent people, they wont be able to qualify. Now we will need to find people to fill this roles based only on sex. Great idea...
