Women should be paid less because they are “smaller, weaker and less intelligent”, Polish MEP

In Polish News

Women in general are smaller, weaker and less intelligent than men and as such should be paid less than their male co-workers, controversial Polish member of the European Parliament Janusz Korwin-Mikke claimed during a debate on gender pay gap.

During the late evening debate in Brussels on Wednesday, Korwin-Mikke claimed that women, since they are “smaller, weaker and less intelligent” than men, should earn less.



In a bizarre attempt to justify his point, Korwin-Mikke stated that there are no women among the top 100 chess players. – Do you know which was the place in the Polish theoretical physics Olympiad, the first place of women, of girls? I can tell you: 800th. Do you know how many women are in the first 100 chess players? I can tell you: not one -, Korwin-Mikke stated.

Causing outrage among MEPs, Spanish socialist MEP Iratxe Garcia Perez slammed Korwin-Mikke by stating that she was in Parliament to defend European women against men like him. – According to your theory I wouldn’t have the right to be here as a member of parliament. I know you are upset and concerned about the fact women can represent citizens in Parliament. I am here to defend European women against men like you -, Perez said.

This was not the first time Korwin-Mikke sparked outrage in the European Parliament. In 2015, he was suspended from Parliament after giving a Nazi salute and shouting “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Ticket”, in response to an idea of a uniform EU transport ticket system.
