Expulsion of Janusz Korwin-Mikke for declared misogyny

Esta petición ha conseguido 28.790 firmas

These were the words of Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke on Thursday in Brussels: "Do you know which was the place of the first woman in the Polish theoretical physics olimpiad? The first woman, I tell you, was 800. Do you know how many women there are among the first hundred chess players? I will tell you: none. Of course, women should earn less than men because they are weaker, smaller, less intelligent. "

Let's not be deluded. This is not about freedom of expression. This is a direct insult to the 3.65 billion women in the world. Women have come a long way in the last few decades to allow for steps back. MYSOGYNINSTS DO NOT REPRESENT US.

We, therefore encourage you to sign this initiative, in which we propose the immediate expulsion of Janusz Korwin-Mikke from the European Parliament for three reasons:

1. Because we pay our representatives in the European Parliament to work for us, not against us. This gentleman has humiliated and disavowed 250 million European women with his remarks.

2. Because we can not allow people that disrespect half of humanity to be in this position of power. Sexist discrimination should not be tolerated in an institution as influential as the European Parliament, where the future of the European Union is decided.

3. Because his statements violate articles 1, 2 and 23 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, concerning equality. Equality between women and men is one of the European Union's founding values. It goes back to 1957 when the principle of equal pay for equal work became part of the Treaty of Rome.

We can not let the rights of women, fought for throughout history, to be thrown away by this supposedly public representative. This is no time to step back. Let us expel this misogynist from the European Parliament. It's easier together.
