2020何凯文每日一句第168句

今天的句子:

Job vacancies at one of Europe’s leading engineering universities will be open exclusively to female candidates for at least the next 18 months in order to overcome the institution’s “implicit gender bias”. Frank Baaijens from the Eindhoven University of Technology said progress towards a better balance of men and women in academic roles had been stubbornly slow. Under the new recruitment policy, men will only be eligible for any academic post if no suitable female candidates emerge within six months of a job becoming available.

(想想你会怎么出题?)

The University has adopted the new recruitment policy as a measure to__________.

A. show that men are only suitable for some positions.

B. demonstrate that female is as qualified as men.

C. strive for a better male and female ratio of staff

D. prove the suitability of female for the research

来看看词汇:

1. implicit gender bias 隐含的性别歧视

2. stubbornly slow 非常缓慢

3. eligible for 有资格做…

4. recruitment policy 招聘政策

5. emerge 出现

6.strive for 为了…而努力奋斗

第一句:

Job vacancies at one of Europe’s leading engineering universities will be open exclusively to female candidates for at least the next 18 months in order to overcome the institution’s “implicit gender bias”.

参考译文:欧洲的一所知名工科大学在未来至少18个月的职位空缺将只向女性候选人开放,以克服该机构的“隐性性别偏见”。

第二句:

The rector of the Eindhoven University of Technology, Frank Baaijens, said progress towards a better balance of men and women in academic roles had been stubbornly slow.

参考译文:埃因霍温科技大学的校长弗兰克·马艾杨斯表示,在学术职业中达到更好的性别平衡的进展一直顽固性地缓慢。

第三句:

Under the new recruitment policy, men will only be eligible for any academic post if no suitable female candidates emerge within six months of a job becoming available.

参考译文:根据新的招聘政策,男性只能在职位空缺了6个月还没有合适的女性候选人出现时,才有资格申请任何学术岗位。

思考题:

那思考题:

The University has adopted the new recruitment policy as a measure to__.

大学采用新的招聘政策作为措施来_________

A. show that men are only suitable for some positions.

显示男性只适合某些职位

不对,文章没有说,只说了一些职位在一定时间段只招女性。

B. demonstrate that female is as qualified as men.

证明女性和男性一样合格

这不是这项政策的目的!文中没有这样说。

C. strive for a better male and female ratio of staff

为了教职人员中更好的性别比例

对!

第一句中的:“implicit gender bias”.

和第二句中的:better balance of men and women

就是依据!

第二句说更好的平衡的过程太缓慢了。

所以这个政策就是为了更好的性别平衡。

D. prove the suitability of female for the research

证明了女性适合做研究。

这不是这项政策的目的!文中没有这样说。
