Equality scheme spreads worldwide
The Athena SWAN gender 'equality' scheme puts the careers of women before those of men http://www.genderequitynetwork.org.uk/impact-of-eq... When it started, Athena SWAN was concerned only with science, technology and engineering careers (STE), but went on to include mathematics (STEM), medicine (STEMM) and now covers the entire range of academic subjects.
Not only has it spread throughout academia in the UK, but is now spreading to Ireland and Australia https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/improve-... It looks like the rest of the world is soon going to spend much of it's time filling in Athena SWAN application forms in order to qualify for funding, avoid fines, and put the careers of men second to those of women.
