This policy is violating EU law. Positive action is allowed under EU law, but absolute and automatic priority to the under repressented gender cannot be given in recruitment as your policy has done. These limits have been illustrated by e.g. the cases C-158/97 and c-407/98.

Hi Steven, the number of female full, associate and assistant professors today is still only 16, 15 and 29 percent respectively. That is why we believe that more far-reaching steps are needed. The aim is to increase the percentage of women in the intake to at least 50% (1/2)
