Labour MP Tracy Brabin #ShoulderGate
Brabin was appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on January 7th, 2020.
The Batley and Spen MP had been raising a point of order in the House of Commons on Monday about journalists being asked to leave a Downing Street press briefing on the next stage of Brexit talks.
Responding to criticism about her dress on Twitter;
“This is everyday sexism, that a woman steps up and no one is listening to what she’s saying – what they’re doing is they’re commenting on her appearance.
And why do they do it? Because it’s a way to silence us. I’m not going to be silenced.”
Despite the trolling there was some support for Tracy on Twitter
