  • Yes, but will she come and re-build your chimney stack after a gale in winter temperatures? These `entrepreneurs` don`t know what work is!

  • You don't end another woman's hour just listen to radio Suffolk between 6 & 9 in the morning to the two presenters who do nothing but talk a load of rubbish .

  • There is little actual point in comparing "similar" roles... they need to be direct comparisons between male and female workers in the same job positions. I can't say I have worked in many offices where the majority of people haven't been women - is it unfair that there isn't a 50-50 male-female ratio? I don't think anyone cares.

  • There must be if they need their own dedicated hour. In fact, isn't that sexist? But of course that's just like having an Association of Black Police Officers, despite there being accusations of racism if there was a white equivalent...
