With a cabinet reshuffle now scheduled in everyone's diary for tomorrow, the big question is how Cameron will try to appear more "pro-women".

With only three women in his cabinet at the moment (compared to 24 men), pressure has been piling on the PM to prove that his government isn't just one big boys' club.

As well as hints that he will be promoting Liz Truss, Esther McVey and Nicky Morgan to top jobs within the coalition, some Tory sources have also said that Cameron is open to the idea of having all-women shortlists.

But is it right to give more women jobs because of their gender, or should everything be based purely on merit? Let us know by taking our poll below:
