Miram O' Callaghan held a good debate last night about gender quotas and their pros and cons. Further discussion here with links to the programme and other related material and press coverage. Pretty shocking that 14 of the 23 women TDs are against a temporary, remedial quota system despite the abysmal progress with female presentation.
Lots of food for thought in the Prime Time Report - NB there are two segments both embedded in the text at the link about.
