Female lawmakers, officials slam Chiche Duhalde’s statements over women in politics
Undersecreatary of Consumers Defense Lucila “Pimpi” Colombo said “it’s not the first time” Chiche Duhalde makes this kind of mistakes. She has already lost her responsibility over humble and working women from the Buenos Aires province suburbs, women who receive their pensions as housewives thanks to the president and Néstor Kirchner.”
She considered Duhalde’s statements “sexist and short.sighted” expressing her “vigorous rejection.”
Margarita Stolbizer complaint to reporters that “it seems as if women have to continually prove their abilities, unlike men.”
"I am surprised because she is a woman who is a politician and has been very related to the government. That statement takes us 50 years back. There is no doubt about the women’s equal conditions,” she added.
