May Promises Action on Sexual Abuse in Parliament

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday action would be taken when there are allegations and evidence of sexual misconduct in parliament. “I am very clear that we will take action against those where there are allegations that we see, and the evidence is there, that there has been misconduct,” she told lawmakers, Reuters reported. A series of claims about the behavior of senior politicians have emerged in recent days, after the Harvey Weinstein scandal encouraged women in other professions to share their experiences. According to the Guardian, the shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, told the BBC’s Andrew Marr that the culture was even worse 30 years ago when she was first elected.
