6 Times Women Politicians Called Out Sexism

These women politicians did not hesitate to call out sexist comments. 👏

How they dealt with sexist comments

  1. This Spanish Eurodeputy's scathing response to the misogynistic tirade of a Polish Eurodeputy. In comments that quickly went viral, GarcĂ­a-PĂ©rez replied: “According to what you are saying 
 I would not have the right to be here. I think I have to defend European women to men like you.” European parliament rules require MEPs “not [to] resort to defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior in parliamentary debates”.

  2. Mitch McConnell cuts off Elizabeth Warren: Sen. Elizabeth Warren was manterrupted by leader Mitch McConnell, as she read a letter by Coretta Scott King, during confirmation hearings for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

  3. A French senator who was referred to as a “nana” or “chick.” Described as "nana" by Bruno Sido, the Socialist Senator Laurence Rossignol simply replied: " You can repeat a little stronger what you just said, senator? " Laurence Rossignol then added: " You have won can this morning the palm of the misogynist beauf of this assembly!"

  4. The Australian Prime Minister’s outrage over opposition leader Tony Abbott’s repeated sexist remarks. Julia Gillard's passionate and fierce attack on misogyny and sexism in Parliament, in which she accused Tony Abbott of a long history of both, was ''a bit rich'' coming from the person who was ''prepared to knife Kevin Rudd, but wasn't prepared to sack Peter Slipper'', according to the Opposition Leader.

  5. An Italian senator who was told to “go back to the kitchen.” The invitation was addressed to Alessandra Maiorino. When the parliamentarian was attacked, she was intervening in general discussion on the security law decree.

  6. A French council member's reaction to a sexist remark from Stéphane Ravier, a far-right city official. The environmentalist Lydia Frentzel was the victim of a sexist statement by Senator RN Stéphane Ravier during a stormy debate of the Marseille City Council. She filed a complaint against her elected, member of the party of Marine Le Pen.

    What some men think they can get away with.... Not on my watch. I'm verbally ripping them to pieces. To.... pieces. They will feel sorry themselves for a long time to come.
