Are we heading in the wrong direction?


Today I spoke to George Mansford, a retired brigadier, about Australian Defence force personnel attending a gender training course. Listen below to our discussion. 

The Australian Defence Force is working towards educating their personnel via a course called Gender Peace and Security on topics such as gender-sensitive, gender-inclusive, and gender-responsive. The course will be run by two professors from Monash University but is this course breaking the team spirit and driving a wedge between the sexes? Four Personnel from the navy, army, airforce, and the public service will attend at the cost of $12, 000. Former army personnel has questioned the necessity of such a course.
