The hypocrisy of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (‘EHRC’)

Nearly two-thirds of public sector employees are women. For every three women registered as unemployed, four men are . The public sector is a job creation scheme for women primarily, and an assault on men.

An interesting story yesterday on the excellent blog, ‘The Rights of Man’ concerning the hypocrisy of the EHRC. The man who runs the site, ‘Skimmington’, writes:

The contempt for equality at the Equalities and Human Rights Commission knows no boundaries when it comes to discriminating against men. It also proves that men have no chance of achieving equality or fighting discrimination when it comes to getting support from this sham hypocritical organisation.

Why not?

Well it has just appointed its new board of 10 commissioners and guess what – eight are women and two are men.

So where does that leave their campaign for meritocracy, equality and diversity in the boardroom when they do not practice it themselves.

In the reactions to the piece, someone suggests challenging the EHRC with its own guidelines, and provided a link to the document (PDF below). We’ll look into it.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
