PMQs: May and Swinson on female party political leaders

The new Lib Dem leader asked Theresa May what advice she would give to women dealing with men "who think they can do a better job, but are not prepared to do the actual work".

In reply, the outgoing PM urged all women to "be true to themselves" and "persevere", before congratulating Jo Swinson on her appointment.

Mrs May noted how many female party leaders there have been in UK politics, adding Labour was "the only party letting the side down".
