In response to Andrew Cadman: Is the feminised society a stagnant society?, Groan wrote:
In Sweden the industrial productive sector has become almost exclusively a male preserve and the public sector female. In fact, the UK is on the same journey with our still vast banking sector being the one significant exception.
So in spite of its herculean efforts at ending gender segregation, Sweden has steadily seen men become the “breadwinners” of its economy, if not in individual households. he Swedish feminists’ abject failure in fact gives Sweden the dynamic economy to tax and finance the country’s vast state-funded sector largely closed to men.
Although the recession was indeed a ‘mancession’, attempting to cut the bloated state sector will cut female employment. The question is, I suppose, will women move into the much harsher world of productive industry for there are only so many office or shop jobs any economy can sustain? Certainly, in the short term, expect to see lots of “positive action” to get women the state-funded jobs, even though men are totally “under represented” already.
