At this time, when global attention is focused on the role of women in our society, due to yesterday's International Women's Day, the picture is not good from female point of view and the prospect of change is distant.

It seems women are paid less for the same job and are under-represented at the top in business and grossly so in national parliaments in what are supposed to be representative democracies made up of equal citizens.

There is a debate going on in an internet forum at the moment which purports to highlight "an insightful, and compelling exposition" of the male view on the issue.
