Motion S5M-16421: Reversing Gender Stereotypes in Jobs

22 Mar 2019

That the Parliament considers that gender stereotypes in jobs continue to exist; agrees that gender stereotypes prevent individuals throughout Scotland, including in Glasgow Shettleston, from realising their full potential, which it believes harms society as a whole; notes what it sees as the excellent work done by Glasgow Caledonian University, including its campaign, @GCUMenRnurses2, and other organisations, in encouraging both men and women to explore their potential beyond traditionally-gendered employment patterns, and further notes calls for additional work to be undertaken to address occupational gender segregation for the benefit of society.
