Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman has accused the Conservative party of having a "problem with women" after claiming there was a pattern of replacing senior women in public positions with men.
"My concern is that we're having a sort of cull of senior, authoritative women and they're all being replaced by men," she told BBC 1's Andrew Marr Show.
Michael Gove replied: "We don't have a problem with women in Tory party, we made one Prime Minister".
Although he admitted there was a broader problem of attracting women into public life.
