President of Malta - Fire Caruana Carabez for his sexist views!

This petition had 210 supporters

The commissioner for education, Charles Caruana Carabez, wrote an article in the Times, entitled "The Foibles of Women." In it, he claimed that women are overly conscious of their bodies and value beauty above everything else. In his view, women whinge a lot and think they know everything.

As a woman who is employed in education, I have lost confidence that Caruana Carabez can fill his role satisfactorily. If I were to forward a concern to his office, I would never be quite certain that his prejudiced view of women did not influence his decision.

For example, if he is already prejudiced to think that I think I know everything, because I'm a woman, it is unlikely he will give my views a fair chance. If he assumes my main concern is my body, it is unlikely he will even listen to my views at all.

For this reason, Caruana Carabez should be removed from his position immediately.
