Aug 09, 2019, 12.50 AM (IST)

Kenyan MP With Her Baby Was Ordered To Leave The Parliament. We live in 2019. Yet prejudice on the basis of gender remains a global problem. Kenya stooped a level further and demonstrated sexism & misogyny in its parliament. Kenyan MP Zuleikha Hassan was not only asked to leave the chamber for carrying her baby to the workplace, but she was also ridiculed for the 'shameful act'. Contrast this with the support that Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand PM received few months back!
