Last week the plenary session in Strasbourg opened with the celebration of International Women´s day. I have always thought that the simple fact that there is a day to celebrate women but no day to celebate men is in itself an act of discrimination.
 
As a woman representing our group I made a speech aimed at stopping any type of discrimination, be it positive or negative. I asked the politicians to stop issuing laws to supposedly defend women as they were more damaging than beneficial with regards to women´s prospects of being employed.
