Another example of the Mayor’s sexism

The Mayor may thinks he’s being funny but his comments last week that women only go to university to meet a husband are nothing less than disgraceful.

The exchange at last week’s launch of World Islamic Economic Forum, reported today by Snipe, are yet another reminder of the Mayor’s true attitudes towards women. In response to a Malaysian Prime Minister’s statement that 68 per cent of the latest intake in his country’s universities will be women, Boris responded with a flippant “They’ve got to find men to marry”.

You’d think he would have learnt his lesson since last year’s furore when his disrespectful and patronising attitudes to women were laid bare in a series of quotes put together by my colleague Jennette Arnold AM, but apparently these attitudes are far too ingrained to change…
