In the Zimbabwean parliament

An example of how a parliament can become unruly and not focus on policy when politicians sledge - particularly on gender. It would be good to hear this in Australia:

Dziva said she agreed with Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga (MDC) who once raised a point of order with Speaker of the National Assembly Mudenda, suggesting that there were too many sexist comments passed on female MPs, especially to do with dressing and their hairdos to the extent that the offending male MPs must be censured.

“Sexist comments are not allowed in Parliament and the Constitution outlaws gender based violence, even in the verbal form,” she said.

Importantly, Dziva entered parliament as a proportional representation MP.
