This particular university is pushing a particular form of affirmative action.
Of course, anyone who knows anything about anything knows that affirmative action is racist, considering you’re telling minorities they’re not good enough to get things done themselves.
But this measure leans more toward the sexist area.

Women applying to study engineering and information technology at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) next year will receive 10 more entry points than their male counterparts, in what the university believes is a first of its kind bid to remedy the under-enrollment of women in these fields.
