Perhaps they should tell off the National party

NZ Herald

A business has been ticked off by the Human Rights Commission for silly questions in a job interview:

But a New Zealand company, which has not been named, was taken to the Human Rights Commission by a jobseeker over gender discrimination.

The woman, named as Abby, was asked in an interview if she was married or engaged, what her partner did for a living, if she was getting married soon and whether she wanted children.

The National party does the same, in pre-selection meetings where, mostly blokes, but sometimes older women ask women candidates whether or not they “will do a Katherine Rich”…not only that but senior office holders wil ring around delegates to support their mates and tell delegates that it is “time for a man”.

Perhaps the Human Rights Commission should go have a chat with the men of the National party board.
