The EU is a master of spin. On the day it announces plans to force through a 40% quota of women in EU boardrooms, we should look more closely at what the EU is planning and how it is hitting the lives of millions of British women.
This morning’s Daily Express reveals how EU gender equality laws are going to force millions of women off the road. EU rules on “gender neutral pricing” will hit female road insurance premiums, putting their often lower tariffs on a par with men. At this time of year, family budgets are tight. Increasing the financial burden on women is unfair and unnecessary and the EU is to blame.
For all its gesturing, the EU is actually harming women. Put this into perspective before rejoicing at their boardroom politicking.
