S&D Iratxe García Pérez respond to the misogynistic comments of Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke.

“And of course women must earn less than men. They are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent and they must earn less… that’s all,” he said.
Our MEP Iratxe Garcia-Perez set him straight:
“According to your opinion, I shouldn’t have the right to be here as a member of parliament. And I know that it hurts you and bothers you that today women can sit in the House to represent citizens with the same rights as you. I am here to defend all European women from men like you.”

We cannot accept this kind of speeches in the European Parliament and anywhere else in Europe. Our fight, women's rights.
