Progressive Party Criticizes Morgunbladid Caricature

progressivepartywomen-logoThe executive board of the National Union of Progressive Party Women has declared absolute disapproval of a caricature published in the daily newspaper Morgunbladid on Saturday depicting one of the party’s MPs, Siv Fridleifsdóttir, as a prostitute.

The board concluded that the newspaper and the caricaturist have crossed the line of decency and attacked the MP in a very distasteful manner, visir.is reports.

The board has demanded an immediate apology, pointing out that prostitution is a serious social problem which escalates in times of crisis because of the poor situation of women.

Fridleifsdóttir was recently in the news saying that she would like her party to join the Social Democrat-Left-Green coalition to help reinforce the government.
