LABOUR was branded sexist for allowing a stall at its conference to sell a commemorative tea-towel celebrating votes for women.

The party gave the People’s History Museum a free stall to sell a range of Suffragette merchandise at Labour’s conference exhibition in Brighton.

The collection of tea towels was priced at £15

It includes a collection of £15 tea towels to remember suffragette martyr Emily Wilding Davison, and another featuring fellow militant suffragette Christabel Pankhurst.


The stall was mocked by Labour activists puzzled at the irony, with one male observer joking that it was the men who did the drying up in his household.

And Tory MP Andrew Bridgen blasted: “Only at Labour party conference would they miss the irony of liberating women to do the drying up.

“Maybe the conference organisers should have taken a look at what their stalls were actually selling before handing them a free slot.”
