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, García-Pérez 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.

    And here we are 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 “Churchill is alleged to have said: ‘The women’s suffrage movement is only the small edge of the wedge, if we allow women to vote it will mean the loss of social structure and the rise of every liberal cause under the sun. Women are well represented by their fathers, brothers and husbands.’ I

    A recurring theme with these broads - they're all socialist or "Greens" (aka communists). Make sure to mock them more thoroughly.

    Who wants to live in a system where politicians argue about how much ANYBODY makes? This is the great fallacy of Socialism. What ANYBODY makes should not be at the whim of a politician.

    These women and all women today in the western world, have never experienced gender discrimination. Feminists are nothing more than a bitter, angry, mob. Demanding special consideration to themselves while demanding men be punished for not bowing to their radical demands of class superiority. They don't want equality, in fact they demand the opposite. That they be treated as the superior race while men are second class citizens with no rights. Feminism is fascism, plane and simple.

    The 1st guy was right on two outta three. The “less intelligent” remark was ridiculous.

    Curious that these clips show it happening in European countries - not in the US. The democrats want US to be more like European countries....hmmm.
