No doubt she would express the same opinion as Lenstrom. Doesn't resolve the issue though doers it,

You think so? Imagine a Fire crew composed solely of women or Police Officers in a brawl. Horses for courses. I have nothing against anyone in any profession other than their ability to do the job.

Good Lord! Are you really so shortsighted? I'm not sure what world you live in but it certainly isn't the real world.

Certainly with Firemen they have changed the standards to ensure equality.

May I also refer you to the decades of research (Kenneth Hickman 1983, Sean Grennan 1989, Claremont Graduate School 1990) of the successful outcomes of woman police officers, including violent situations because of different skill sets that tend to predominate with gender roles. Your conservative perspective views solutions in one way, a way, when all male, requires strength and force, despite research and experience suggesting otherwise. No one is advocating an all women police force, you were creating strawmen. But all male policing is also not ideal. Men, by and large just don't have the deescalation skills

Not all men view women as inferior, yet many do. But they tend to be single, or multi-divorced. For obvious reasons.

There was a generation that grew up thinking you had to be female to be PM.

I'm not into this divisive identity-politics-driven, forced quota malarky. Everyone should be given fair opportunity to apply for whatever job they wish to and be given a fair go based on the results of their tested capabilities and willingness to do the job. In other words the selection process should be transparent to applicants and appeal-able.

Entirely irrespective of everything else, Leadsom has more than one screw loose.
