Activists masquerading as journalists. Always a load of fun.
There’s nothing the bureaucrats like more than a good conference to talk ad nauseam about some perceived problem.
This time the topic is women, specifically how women are getting screwed.
“They are giving a ton, but they are experiencing some of the most gender inequality in the country. Women and girls are showing up for Oregon; it’s time Oregon shows up for women and girls.”
Just what this means, I’m not sure. Women are facing issues, lots of issues, apparently.
“This is our chance to make sure leaders across the state know what matters to women and girls in our community.”
Never mind the increasing gap in the ratio of men and women in college. Disregard the stats on those pursuing advanced degrees, with women dominating. Just ignore the fact that 14 of the 17 community colleges in Oregon have presidents who are women.
“Attendees said the most important contributions women and girls make to their community are leadership, empowerment, support and ‘amor,’ or love.”
Doesn’t this make you feel all warm and fuzzy?
I think what this shows is how useless higher education has become. It’s more and more a complete waste of time and money. Folks aren’t learning a damn thing.
