Women are not scrubbers
Judith Collins Clevedon MP
Labour Deputy Leader Michael Cullen’s comments on women on the DPB are offensive and demeaning, says National MP Judith
“Michael Cullen claimed that I want all women on the DPB to become ‘scrubbers’. This is offensive and demeaning to
women, especially those seeking employment. He is suggesting that all women in menial or first-time jobs are cleaners.
“Dr Cullen tries to be clever but comes across as offensive and a snob.
“His attitude is especially inappropriate given that Women’s Suffrage Day is celebrated this week,” said Ms Collins.
