The Moderate Party is making an election year play to increase its appeal to feminist voters, promising to take on gender-based pay disparities and ranking schools according to gender equity, among other proposals.

"Gendered power structures still exist despite efforts which have been made to increase equality between the sexes," the Moderates write in the gender equity platform embraced by the party's governing board, the Svenska Dagbladet (SvD) reports.

"We politicians must do more to improve gender equity. Both as lawmakers and as employers in the public sector."

"Subjective" differences in pay between men and women will be dealt with, the Moderates assert.

Haha, the white trash brigade is going to hate this. I expect at least 15 comments about how Sweden is a worthless man-hating politically correct nanny state. Don't disappoint me.

Seems that they somehow ignore the decision of Swedish court which basically ruled against gender quotas on universities: http://www.thelocal.se/24330/20100112/
Basically the idea was that people who have the best qualification should be allowed in, not those preferred by a quota. Now why should one apply quotas to corporate boards of private companies and not on university admission?

Glad they've got the guts to tackle the toughest and most important issues facing Sweden - NOT! Cheap politics, cheap party.

No - for sure quotas are OK. Just bring the quotas back to unies, introduce them to the army (even if it means a draft of all females above 18 and later filtering), quotes in educational system, veterinary and all the social working jobs etc.
Make it impossible for females to stay with the kid for more than half a year...
What is interesting is that tons of these "women equality improvement programs" are run by familyless, unmarried, hairy, lonely females who are frustrated that they are not men and do not actually LISTEN to what women really want, but rather to what they themselves would like to have.
FREAKING ASK all women above 30 with kids how many would like to be on a board of directors. ASK! Then start with inventions of quotas...
