Why cant Ireland do as Norway,rent a prison in Holland or UK,and send them there,they have loads of women and people with ethnic background,problem solved.
Could an argument be made though that in general and I stress in general women are not physically suited to these roles?
That is precisely the argument I am making.
I am pretty sure women are ment for female prisoners and men are for male prisoners.
It's real, if you searched the entire quote it's the first result. http://www.thejournal.ie/mountjoy-prison-3844007-Feb2018/
It's not feminists making the point, it's the Irish Prison Service. They've decided they want to appeal to women in their current recruitment drive and have decided to point out that it's not only a mans job. Nobody is calling for gender quotas here so you can calm down
No I was referring to the jobs referenced in the post I quoted not Prison Officers.
No quotas right now, we'll see how it goes if they don't get the numbers.
If they don't get the numbers voluntarily you think they'll introduce a quota?
It's a simple numbers game, the IPS needs to increase staff numbers to meet rising demand. If there is a perception that this is a "mans job" they are only pulling applications from 50% of the population. Within that 50% they're only getting applications from the percentage of men who want to or are willing to become prison officers which I dare say isn't a massive number. It stands to reason that they would advertise to the other 50% of the population that this job is a rewarding one that is open to them too in the hope that some of them might also consider it so then they have a higher percentage of applicants to choose from.

It was female tds voting against gender quotas a while back as well but i suppose that's not anti women enough to rant about

A politically correct way of saying that they want cheap labour.
