'Toxic boys club': Women in politics join calls for code of conduct in parliament

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women from across the political spectrum have called for greater representation in parliament and a code of conduct to create a safer and more equal workplace.

Several federal MPs attended a summit run by the ANU's Global Institute for Women's Leadership on Thursday where they described the culture in politics as a “toxic boys club” with a "sexist underbelly".
Greens Senator Larissa Waters also described the culture as "a bit of toxic boys club".

"Those in power are often pale, male and stale and there are not enough women at the decision making table," she said.'
