On 8th March we celebrate International Women's Day by supporting those women who are living in very difficult circumstances all over the world.
A Polish member of the European Parliament showed himself to be a sexist hater by saying the following words:"women should earn less because they are weaker, smaller and less intelligent".
An investigation is underway, and a decision to ban him, could be made any moment. On International Women's Day, let's show the EU this isn't just an internal issue anymore -- people *everywhere* want them to ban this sexist hater.
This isn't just about one man -- this is about people coming together and showing our politicians we completely reject the Trumps of the world normalizing hateful, misogynist and xenophobic rhetoric. To make matters worse - he's even given a nazi salute inside the chamber!
Mr. Korwin-Mikke's hateful speech violates the EU parliament's regulations, and they have the responsibility to hold him accountable with the highest possible sanctions. He can be suspended directly by the President of the Parliament, and if 2/3rds of the MEPs agree, even kicked out permanently!
Let’s use this International Women’s day to stand together and kick sexism out of the European Parliament, and politics everywhere! Then share this with friends and family who also reject sexism and xenophobia -- let's make our call impossible to ignore!
Just a few weeks ago, Avaazers all around the world joined a global women’s march all around the world. Let’s make sure our political leaders stand with women against hate.
