The Minister for Tertiary Education, Steven Joyce, on 7 November 2013, fielded a question in Parliament from Labour Party Women's Affairs spokesperson, Carol Beaumont.  She asked:

How does a woman’s participation rate of 4 percent in the boatbuilding industry, 5 percent in the infrastructure industry, or 7 percent in the electrical supply industry help with the Better Public Services goal of increasing the number of people with advanced trades qualifications?

Steven Joyce replied:

It is true that in some areas women have less participation in training; in other areas the rates are higher—for example, in the area of universities and tertiary education generally more women are involved than men.

Here are some of the points that could be made here:

  1. The percentage of women in these industries is totally irrelevant to the overall number of people there, so Carol Beaumont is incompetent at logic, which is what you would expect from a woman with a Social Science degree from Massey University.

  2. The Labour Party has a spokesperson for Women's Affairs, just as the Government has a Minister of Women's Affairs, but there is no male equivalent, so there is no one to stand up for men against female selfishness and Female Supremacism.

  3. Carol Beaumont was hypocritically complaining about the lack of women in certain industries, whereas she did not complain about the relative lack of men in tertiary education generally, as Steven Joyce pointed out.

  4. Women tend to go for the cushy, clean, safe, indoor jobs, and I am sure that no Women's Affairs spokesperson or Minister has ever complained that most fatal workplace deaths involve men, not women.
