ADF must to more for women: Fitzgibbon

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) is curbing talent by sending a subliminal message to women that they cannot rise to the top ranks, Defence Minister Joel Fitzgibbon says…Mr Fitzgibbon said only 13 per cent of full-time ADF personnel were women and their numbers had been stagnant for a decade.

“I say we’re restricting our talent pool here by sending out a subliminal message to women that while they can become the CEO of a major bank, they can never become a CEO of the ADF,” said on ABC television.”
