Ireland: Women-only professorships 'not discriminating against men', says Mitchell O'Connor

Article here. Excerpt:

'THE CREATION OF female-only professorships in Irish third-level institutions is “not discriminating against men”, the Minister of State for Higher Education has said.

45 female-only additional professor positions were announced by Minister of State for Higher Education Mary Mitchell O’Connor in November 2018.

Research by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) showed that in 2017, 51% of lecturers were female, while only 24% of professor posts were filled by women.

20 female-only professorships are expected to be in place by September this year.'
