Justine Greening, Development Secretary: ‘Women and girls are disproportionately affected by typhoons.’

Another story for the ‘You couldn’t make this s*** up!’ file:

Just look at the aftermath of any natural disaster. The people doing almost all the dangerous and unpleasant work recovering bodies, repairing infrastructure etc. will be men. The people sitting down and giving interviews to TV crews, demanding support, will mostly be women.

Justine Greening would surely not be in the cabinet if it weren’t for Dave’s insistence that women are over-represented in the cabinet relative to the proportion of female MPs in the Conservative party. I’m reminded of a video by ManWomanMyth with the theme that women and girls are disproportionately affected by global warming. I’ll try to track it down and publish it in a new post. Because here at J4MB we like to go the extra mile.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Didn’t they know that typhoons are a by-product of the patriarchy? Or maybe just nature rebelling against female entitlement…

  • I notice she doesn’t qualify her theory in any way.
