Shortage Of Male Undergraduates Causing Concern The shortage of male undergraduates and the growing dominance of female students in British universities is one of the biggest problems facing higher education, according to university admission tutors.

The gap at university level originates in the underachievement of boys at school.

Of course it's an issue. Those female graduates want, no, demand to marry up. How can they do that if there aren't enough rich men to go around? Something must be done.


the growing army of young men who exclude themselves from this experience
No, they are excluded by the education system. Stop blaming men for what you did to them.

In some ways this is a success story that has gone slightly wrong
No, destroying men so they would be lower than women was the intended result.

The bigger problem is that most of these 'professional' women will end up taking career breaks or going part time in the relatively short term and in terms of medical etc this is going to put organisations like the NHS under such strain as there will not be enough personell to do the amount of work that is required.

It will have a normalising effect and therefore won't matter. It will become the norm for professionals to work short hours and take regular breaks. With the longer-working men qualified out of the professional jobs market, they won't have that competition.
