The Sunday Times Accused Of ‘Sexist, Totally Misjudged’ Feature On Childless Women Politicians

The paper had run the feature in its magazine supplement, but only included women – highlighting Prime Minister Theresa May, the German chancellor Angela Merkel, Labour MP Angela Eagle, Scottish Tories leader Ruth Davidson, Justine Greening – the education secretary, and ex-Green leader Natalie Bennett. 

The list accompanied an exclusive serialisation of sections from a new book in which Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon revealed her pain at having mis-carried in 2011.

Sturgeon was widely praised for speaking out about the issue, including by Scottish Labour’s Kezia Dugdale.
