General Election 2017: Women's Equality Party leader to stand for Shipley seat

The leader of the Women's Equality Party, Sophie Walker, is to stand against Tory MP and male rights advocate Philip Davies in the election.

Sophie Walker
BBC

If elected in the West Yorkshire seat of Shipley, she said she would be a "voice for all women" in Westminster.

She said Mr Davies had a "track record of misogyny", including trying to block laws on domestic violence.

Mr Davies said he welcomed his rival "parachuting herself" into the seat with a "politically correct agenda".

Mr Davies, who won the Shipley seat with a majority of more than 9,624 at the last election, is an outspoken critic of political correctness and what he has described as "zealous" feminism.
