A piece in Grazia, a pathetic parade of whiny self-obsessed men-hating female MPs. Margaret Thatcher would have called them all “Moaning Minnies”, and she’d have been right. Lowlights include:
Jess Phillips (Labour, Birmingham Yardley): “I’m constantly trying to fight against my own internalised socialisation that I don’t deserve to be here.” [J4MB: As for the rest of us, it’s simply common sense that this toxic harridan, who we’ve never known comment on male victims or female perpetrators of domestic violence, doesn’t deserve to be an MP – in part because she was appointed from an all-women shortlist, in part because she hates men, who represent half the electorate.]
Danielle Rowley (Scottish Labour): ‘A lot of unexpected coverage of me talking about my period – which is great, but also highlights the need to talk about periods more openly. A woman mentioning her period shouldn’t be such huge news – let’s use this opportunity and work together to get to a place where it’s not!’
Penny Mordaunt (C, Portsmouth North): The Minister for Women and Equalities, Penny Mourdant launched the National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security which calls for more women to be at the centre of the DFID’s peace, security and humanitarian programmes. [J4MB: Women at the centre of government programmes? That would make a change…]
Melanie Onn (Labour, Great Grimsby): “She has called for a law change to have misogynistic acts such as wolf-whistling, leering and sexual comments in public to be made a criminal offence.”
Monica Lennon (Scottish Labour MSP): “Monica introduced a Member’s Bill into Scottish parliament that would see the creation of free universal access to sanitary products. Proposing also that schools, colleges and universities provide free sanitary products in their toilets, she led the campaign that stands to end period poverty in Scotland.”
