Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries accuses Penny Mordaunt of failing to stand up for women when she dismissed concerns over the erasing of the words ‘mother’ and ‘wife’ from a new maternity leave law

Penny Mordaunt has dismissed concerns over the removal of the terms ‘mother’ and ‘wife’ from a new law governing maternity leave, according to Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries yesterday.

She claimed the would-be Tory leader ‘dismissed’ criticism for calling people ‘people’ instead.

After being accused of failing to stand up for women, Ms Dorries’ intervention will raise new questions about the “woke” views of the Minister for International Trade.

She claimed Miss Mordaunt ‘refused to even discuss’ the changes she was recommending with fellow ministers Liz Truss and Kemi Badenoch, who are now challenging her for the leadership job.

“I have a WhatsApp exchange from when I tried to reach out,” she wrote on Twitter, “where Penny again rejects the question of deleting the words ‘mother and wife’ and replacement [them] with no one, instead urging me to focus not on that, but on the positives.

” I called him. She informed me that a woman could not be called a wife or a mother in the legislation due to the legal position of the Equality Act. It was wrong.

“I begged No 10 to intervene.” I think Kemi and Liz made the same mistake.

The wording was changed after Liz took over the portfolio and further pressure from Lords. We all have different opinions on a variety of topics, Ms Dorries continued.

This does not make them legitimate targets of criticism or virtuous indignation, but rather subjects of discussion in a thriving and civilized democracy.

It came after Miss Mordaunt claimed she was the target of ‘smears’ following the publication of a document which appeared to indicate she had changed her mind on transgender issues.

After claiming that she had never supported gender self-identification, according to which a person should be able to determine their gender identity without any medical requirements, the former Secretary of Defense has endeavored to brush off inquiries about his past opinions.

According to the leaked document, she had supported eliminating at least one step of the medical procedure needed to officially change gender.

During a televised debate, Miss Mordaunt argued with Miss Truss and Ms Badenoch over their alleged reversal of the policy she supported as Minister for Women and Equal Rights.

” I called him. She informed me that a woman could not be referred to as a wife or a mother in legislation under the legal statute of the Equality Act. It was wrong.

“I begged No 10 to intervene.” I think Kemi and Liz made the same mistake.

The wording was changed once Liz took over the portfolio amid increased pressure from the Lords. We all have diverse ideas on a variety of topics, Ms. Dorries continued.

This does not make them legitimate targets of criticism or virtuous indignation, but rather subjects of discussion in a flourishing and civilized democracy.

After claiming that she had never supported gender self-identification, according to which a person should be free to choose their gender identity without any medical qualifications, the former Secretary of Defense tried to sweep inquiries about his previous opinions.
