A headline in Daily Mail newspaper has caused a wide outrage among people, the paper wrote 'Never Mind Brexit- Who Won Legs-It' after British Prime Minister Theresa May had a meeting with Nicola Sturgeon.[PHOTO]

Many people including the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and MPs including Harriet Harman and Yvette Cooper were among those who criticised the Daily Mail front page for being sexist and offensive.
But PM May has a totally opposite reaction towards the headline- according to a report by Express & Star, Theresa says, "As a woman in politics throughout my whole career I have found that very often, what I wear - particularly my shoes - has been an issue that has been looked at rather closely by people. Obviously, what we do as politicians is what makes a difference to people's lives. I think that most people concentrate on what we do as politicians. But if people want to have a bit of fun about how we dress, then so be it."

The article did not focus on the important issue of the Brexit meeting but chose to focus the article about the "legs"of the women who met for the cause. The daily wrote in the article- "What stands out here are the legs - and the vast expanse on show.'
May added further that she is used to facing such sexism and being a politician she cares more of her duties towards her people, she laughed off the sexist headline.
A spokesman for the First Minister said to Express & Star: "It is slightly surprising that when the First Minister of Scotland and the Prime Minister of the UK meet to discuss the key issues of the UK's departure from the EU and giving the people of Scotland a choice over their future that the main focus should be on their legs and what they are wearing."
Former Labour leader Ed Miliband had a very witty way to react to the headline, he tweeted: “The 1950s called and asked for their headline back.”
London mayor Sadiq Khan, on an official visit to Brussels, said it would only serve to put off girls and young women from entering politics.
It is sad that in the time where women have been to space and back, influential papers portray women as an object, like the fact that whatever agenda they are working for is of little significance in front of their bodily appearance.
