Harman pushes discrimination plan

Can't this work both ways?
"The equalities minister said firms should be able to choose a woman over a man of equal ability if they wanted to"
Surely that must work the same in reverse. I know people who work in HR and say allot of HR teams are all female, they can't just hire a male to balance the team due to discrimination issues.
"We've got a new post coming up, we've got equally qualified men and women going for it, we are going to pick the woman because we want to have a more balanced top team."
This is just common sence in my oppinion, if a company has a good case for wanting a male or female then they should be able to do it. Not quite sure why this law has to be slanted in favour of women, what's needed is a bigger push for equality.
