Need A Change In Mind­set

Apro­pos ‘Yes, Opin­ions Can Be Harm­ful’ by Ma­lika Ro­drigues (Aug 9). Un­doubt­edly, gen­der dis­crim­i­na­tion hurts the self­worth of women em­ploy­ees. But pun­ish­ment in­clud­ing dis­missal does not strike at the root of the prob­lem, and is only a tem­po­rary relief. The root cause of dis­crim­i­na­tion is the mind­set of the male, and that must change. A strong or­gan­i­sa­tional culture to­gether with reg­u­lar drive for so­cial aware­ness and re­spect for all col­leagues are as im­por­tant as quick pun­ish­ment, but its not easy to en­sure this.
