Storm over equal rights

Evening Times - - SPORT -

A GLAS­GOW em­ploy­ment lawyer came un­der fire for de­scrib­ing women cam­paign­ing for equal rep­re­sen­ta­tion in par­lia­ment as “an­tidemo­cratic ex­trem­ists”.

Mal­colm Cameron also said back­ers of ‘Women 50:50’ are “self­ish ca­reer women who want to ad­vance them­selves” and called their ideals “so­ci­etal cancer”. The lawyer who had been rep­re­sent­ing work­ers at tri­bunals for 30 years made the com­ments on Twit­ter. Women 50:50 calls for po­lit­i­cal par­ties to en­sure half of can­di­dates stand­ing for elec­tion are fe­male.
