Engineering profession is being damaged by outdated ‘white, middle-aged, male stereotype’, finds racist, ageist, sexist ‘study’

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in November 2017:

Our thanks to Jeff for this. 9 per cent of engineers in the UK are female. This is not, of course, a problem. An extract from the piece:

A survey of more than 1,000 children aged nine to 16 showed that fewer than one in 10 described a typical engineer as a woman.

You have to worry about the children who believed a ‘typical engineer’ IS a woman. Tens of millions of pounds of taxpayer’s money have been wasted in an effort to push more young women into engineering. With few exceptions, women don’t want to become engineers. The career doesn’t tick the boxes that, say, becoming a doctor does. And after having their first child, few female engineers return to work as engineers.
