Equidad en UK

Si los patrones de discriminación y marginación son tan fuertes no se puede esperar que ellos mismos se arreglen con el paso del tiempo, se tienen que tomar medidas de discriminación positiva, un ejemplo es las acciones que se estan tomando en UK (En la BBC). Cuando se emprenderán medidas similares en el Perú.

Equality minister Harriet Harman has set out plans to allow firms to discriminate in favour of female and ethnic minority job candidates.

(…)”A society which is equal and fair is one which is more at ease with itself,” she added.

(…) Allowing “positive action” would help organisations such as the police better reflect the communities they serve by recruiting more female and ethnic minority officers, said Ms Harman.

But if, for example, a headmistress wanted to discriminate in favour of a male teacher to balance an all female team that would be allowed too.

(…)Asked how she could justify discrimination in the name of equality, she said she wanted tackle “patterns of discrimination” in the workforce and ensure firms were “not just ‘entrenched in the old boy network'”.

(…)It also aims to close the gender pay gap by forcing firms to publish pay rates. Female part-time workers still earned 40% less per hour than their full-time male counterparts, Ms Harman told Today BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

“Do we think she is 40% less intelligent, less committed, less hard-working, less qualified? It’s not the case. It’s entrenched discrimination. It’s allowed to persist because it’s all swept under the carpet.”
