Scott Morrison Respects Women

When this government came to power in 2013, Australia was ranked 24th out of 133 nations for gender equality. Today we are ranked 39th.

WEF Global Gender Gap report, 2018

But don't fear women of Australia, on Mother's Day Scottie said he respects you!

It follows from his mathematically bizarre comment, on International Women's Day no less, "We want to see women rise. But we don’t want to see women rise only on the basis of others doing worse."

Let's try the math on this. Suppose we would like to see a greater proportion of women MPs or women CEOs.

Could Morrison explain how this increase would not be at the expense of male MPs or male CEOs?
Replacing hermaphrodite MPs and CEOs perhaps? I suspect there isn't enough to make a difference.
