    By listening to those hacks you'd think women all think the same.

    Promising to give free tampons and sanitary napkins is a sure way to get the woman's vote

    Every time someone on BBC or Sky News says 'gender pay gap' as if this is an immutable fact, please remember that it has been illegal since 1970 to pay men and women differently for the same work...

    Lib Dems fired a woman for questioning why trans women rights should be put above natural born women's rights...So they're off to a flying start 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    If I was a woman, I would be insulted at the enormous condescension of these establishment hacks, who think that they can group all woman into a single voting block.

      😂 trust me. They sit there like they know and represent every single woman. So condescending, and they're doing it to act like they're such good people. The irony

    identity politics are the only way to appeal to women and minorities.

    How are politicians appealing to men?
    Come on Sky, stop feeding into Indentity Politics.
    Its not something we should be focused on, it should be a focus on the country as a whole and not individual groups of people.
    This is sexism pure and simple, but then again its the BBC so not really surprizing.

    Maybe they should just appeal to voting age human people in general. I'm sure many issues that affect men affect women too

    What kind of stupid question is that. Women are unique individuals and don't all think the same

    It goes on to say that even women didn't vote for Theresa May, in 2017 :))
    That shows women do not vote with their genitalia, despite what the media keeps telling us.

    For Britain Party is the only party that will save the UK from its enemies foreign and domestic.
    But until they stand in the following election we need to support The Brexit Party in order to keep the Torys in check.

      The problems in this country are not the fault of foreign enemies. It's the current establishment and government parties, tories, labour, libdems.

    Sophie Ridge shouldn't be there. We need more diversity in parliament. She should give her job up to an African or Pakistani lady.
    Diversity is strength right? Two white women and 1 African is not diversity.

    If men and women are to be treated as equal, why do politicians need a different strategy to attract female voters?

      Good point. If men and women are equal then we shouldn't have feminism at all. Checkmate.

    Conservatives are the most female friendly. Unlike Labour, Tories aren't scared of female leadership.

      @Swurvin Creations True. Gender shouldn't be considered in elections. It's all about intentions and motivations

    • Swurvin Creations

      Libdems and SNP have female leaders so.. Gender is irrelevant anyway.

    There is a large population of women brexiteers too. Brexit is paramount, everything else is a distraction.
