Dutch university told to stop offering women-only job vacancies

Article here. Excerpt:

'Eindhoven University only advertised scientific vacancies to women to improve the gender ratio in permanent staff in July 2019.

If a job isn't filled within six months, men are eligible to apply.

New female staff also receive a $172,000 research fund and special mentoring programme.

An anti-discrimination bureau took the university to the Human Rights Council after receiving 50 complaints.

A Board of Human Rights ruled Eindhoven University "in conflict" with Dutch equal treatment legislation on July 3.
The Council's ruling is not legally binding but can be used as evidence in a court case.'
