Diversity has failed women.

Whilst barriers have fallen and women have taken up occupations and professions from which they were previously excluded, recognition of the diversity of the sexes has yet to be implemented.

Women have achieved the status of honorary men in the workforce, politics, business and the courts rather than women in their own right.

All the women's input in the world, from individuals, groups, collectives, committees and organisations, amounts to nothing when men can interrupt and overule in legislatures and legal jurisdictions where opinion matters the most.

Without a women's voice assembled exclusively by women without interruption from men, reinforced by women's legislatures and a women's jurisdiction at law, there is no diversity for women, only the intermittent voices of individual women encouraged and supported selectively by men acting in their own, not women's interests.

If women are to benefit from policies of diversity then it must be collectively as a group not individually suffering interminable interruption and diabolical selection.

Only a republic comprising women's and men's legislatures presided over by an executive of elders accompanied by courts of women's and men's jurisdiction can deliver diversity to women.
