"Casual sexism from politicians is no joke"; London Office Director Jacqui Hunt on how elected members of parliament should help eliminate rather than reflect harmful gender stereotypes.
As elected public representatives, it is essential that MPs communicate with respect and dignity at all times. It is their responsibility to help eliminate rather than reflect harmful gender stereotypes. They need to set the example to ensure that women and girls do not experience prejudice or abuse, but rather reach their full potential as human beings.
