"It may be about reframing the goals of engineering research and curriculums to be more relevant to societal needs. It is not just about gender equity — it is about doing better engineering for us all."
Well, Nilsson is correct, in part. It's not about gender equality. It's about reorganizing an entire field of study to cater to a targeted group. That is not gender equality, it's feminist ideology. In today's society, if you cannot compete, the rules of play are changed. There's no incentive to become better; to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.
