"Women must earn less because they are less intelligent"
Last Wednesday, the far right Polish MP Janusz Korwin-Mikke made another controversial statement at a session on the pay gap between men and women in the European Parliament. According to him, it is quite normal that they are paid less: "of course that women should be paid less than men, because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent. They must less win, that's all! ", he said in the Chamber. The Spanish Socialist MEP Iratxe Garcia immediately replied: "according to you, according to your theory, I wouldn't have the right to stand here as a member of. And I know it hurts you, I know it pains you and do you care that today ' today, we women, we can represent the people in the same conditions. At this place, I will defend the European women against men like you! ». The president of the European institution Antonio Tajani announced the opening of an investigation for sexist remarks. Janusz Korwin-Mikke already was sanctioned by the European Parliament on several occasions, including for a nazi salute in the Chamber.
