A UK MP, Henry Jones argues that:
'The Women’s Equality party are the new girls on the Westminster block. Chief among their political objectives is achieving “equal representation.” They claim that if the UK was to have more equal political representation, “violence against women and the specific needs of women in our health service would be taken more seriously”.'
The argument is that countries with high levels of female representation have high reported rates of sexual violence. Mr Jones suggests there is no need for equal representation.
This is a common fallacious argument where false comparisons are made using data that cannot be matched. The real issue is whether women are democratically represented or not.
