3,693 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Women and men of Europe, let us say it out loud! Humiliation of women is not allowed in Europe of 21st century. It has no place in democratic society. It has no place in European Parliament. That is why women and men, equal in dignity, rights, values and capabilities, demand your resignation, MEP Janusz Korwin Mikke until 8 March 2017, international women's day.

This petition is response to discussion of MEP Janusz Korwin Mikke at the plenary of European Parliament on wednesday, 1 March 2017. These are his words about gender pay-gap:

Janusz Korwin-Mikke (NI), blue-card question. – "Do you know which was the place in the Polish theoretical physics Olympiad, the first place of women, of girls? I can tell you: 800th. Do you know how many women are in the first 100 chess players? I can tell you: not one. Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent, and they must earn less. That is all."

His statement is unacceptable, discriminatory and humiliating for women. It is also against all non-discrimination acts and it violates human rights. This is why we, women and men of Europe demand resignation of MEP. Here is a link to his discussion (19. Gender pay-gap (debate), no.8): http://www.europarl.europa.eu/plenary/en/debate-de...

Please sign the petition.

    Women can do anything they are challenged with and as a matter of fact, we are better managers.
