A NZ University chancellor has come under fire for his sexist remarks.

A New Zealand University chancellor has come under fire for his sexist comments about female vets. Chris Kelly of Massey University has caused uproar when he said that the once majority male career was now ‘dominated by women... the problem is one woman graduate is equivalent to two-fifths of a full time equivalent vet throughout her life because she gets married and has a family, which is normal.’

He continued to say; So although we’re graduating a lot of vets, we’re getting a high fall out rate later on.’

Opponents pointed out that malevets also have families and family obligations.

The Chancellor later tried to defend himself after coming under attack from farmers, vets and the general public and has since resigned from his position.

Kelly made his comments in NZ paper The Rural News.

Next year’s vice chancellor of the University will be Professor Jan Thomas a woman and vet.
