Females are more than equal in the Federal and Ontario Public Service

Some interesting stats from the Ontario Public Sector which is currently rapidly approaching a 60% female demographic, which of course means men are a minority of 40% of the employees.

In the Federal Public Service have a look at the numbers from the

Sixteenth Annual Report to the Prime Minister on the Public Service of Canada

Public Service Diversity
a) Gender
"The reversal in gender representation over the past 25 years remains one of the most significant changes in the public service.
In 2008, women represent 54.9% of public servants (compared with 42% in 1983)."


Since 1998 - 10 years ago - women have been the majority population in the Federal Government.

The gender feminists won't be happy with this though, (are they ever) because they will whine about the top jobs being controlled by men. Affirmative action has been in place since the 70's and they have no one to blame but themselves if they can't get the top jobs on merit.
