a quarter of the FDP is Not even members of female. The proportion of women in the Bundestag only the AfD is worse. This cannot stand, the FDP is to change something.
A specter is haunting the FDP, the specter of the women's quota. "When you enter into a liberal party, and then what reads a Quote, then a first, freeze the blood," says, for example, Sarah Buss of the FDP of lower Saxony. And is not alone in this.
For many liberals is "ratio" is a lovely word. Rigid and performance-hostile, many find the idea. In addition, the FDP is officially against a quota in company boards. Now, however, a in the own Store - what would that look like?"If you wait another 20 years, nothing will happen"
on the Other hand, also by Sarah Buss of lower Saxony, the realization: "At some point, we need to change something is binding. Because if you wait another 20 years, nothing will happen."
The FDP wants to do something to help, but the unpopular rate to avoid. Not an easy task for the party's internal working group for the advancement of women. For a year she has discussed. The result: Policy issues, the missing women so far, should get in the FDP a larger role. For example, the compatibility of family and career.
