This assignment deals with the debate on gender quota and the possible consequences thereof should they be implemented in Denmark. We analyze what these consequences might be, with the help of the theories by respectively, Nancy Fraser, Charles Taylor and Thomas Sowell. Furthermore the arguments for and against affirmative action by these theorists, as well as those of Russell Jacoby, will be discussed, in an attempt to achieve a better understanding of the debate. Additionally, parallels will be drawn to the quite similar debate seen in USA in the 1960s, where Afro-Americans were exposed to affirmative action.
