Another dose of socialist tokenism from Labor

January 24, 2019

Labor has sharpened its socialist credentials again by another virtue signalling dog-whistle.

The Advertiser reports, Labor's Deputy leader Tanya Plibersek says women, indigenous Australians and the disabled would feature more prominently in the Australian honours list under a Labor government.

Conservative Party Queensland senate candidate Lyle Shelton tweeted "If Labor wins the election, we will get political correctness on steroids."

Currently, about three-in-10 of the Order of Australia awards - which celebrate the impressive contributions of Australians - have gone to women since 1975.

Labor says 40 per cent of the awards should be given to women in 2020, with the ultimate aim of women receiving 50 per cent of all awards.

The party also wants more awards to go to indigenous, culturally diverse and disabled Australians.

Ms Plibersek says the party would reach its gender targets by changing the awards categories.

At the moment, stand-alone categories recognise traditionally male-dominated professions, such as building and construction.

Some female-dominated fields fall under other categories - such as nursing, recognised within the medicine section.

At the moment, only about 30 per cent of nominations highlight women's achievements.
