Canada’s premiers all have to deal with a lot of criticism on a daily basis — that’s part of the job, after all.
But are the harsh words even harsher for our six female premiers? A new Tumblr site entitled Madam Premier (features NSFW language) is collecting some of the nasty sexist comments levelled against Christy Clark and other women leaders.
Earlier this year, BC premier Christy Clark had a radio DJ, on behalf of a reader, ask her what it’s like to be a “MILF”. Last May, British billionaire Richard Branson wrote a blog post where he suggested Clark should take off her clothes and kite surf on his back.
