Keep women on part time, casual, insecure and low paid contracts and sack them when the going gets tough?

What is really perverse about this is the founder of the Grameen Bank, Muhammad Yunus, discovered.  If you give women economic power, i.e., a micro-credit loan, they use it to raise the nutrition level of family meals, send the children to school, and do other things to increase the living standard of their family.  If they give the loans to men they piss it away.
