Women should be paid less because they’re smaller, weaker and less intelligent – Polish MEP
Since women are “smaller, weaker and less intelligent” than men they rightfully should earn less, a controversial Polish member of the European Parliament has claimed during a debate on gender pay gap, sparking an immediate and fierce backlash.
To support his argument, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, a right-wing politician who represents the remote region of Silesia, claimed that there are no women among the world’s top chess players. Women according to him are also much weaker when it comes to physics.
“Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller and they are less intelligent, they must earn less, that‘s all,” stated the 74-year-old MEP.
