Hungary’s govt to stop financing gender studies courses – aide
Hungary’s government will stop financing gender studies university courses, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff said on Tuesday. Gergely Gulyas cited low enrolment numbers, which he said would be reason enough alone to shut down the courses, but also spelled out the government’s ideological opposition, Reuters reported. Re-elected in April to a third consecutive term, Orban said in July that major cultural and intellectual changes were in the works. “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that people are born either men or women. They lead their lives the way they think best, but beyond this, the Hungarian state does not wish to spend public funds on education in this area,” Gulyas said.
