Former Conservative party chairman Baroness Warsi has hit out at "bitchy" male colleagues who questioned whether she was up to the job.
Warsi resigned from the Government last week over its "morally indefensible" stance on Gaza.
"Some of the bitchiest women I've ever met in my life are the men in politics," she told the Independent on Sunday and the Times.
“I am a brown, working-class woman from the north. People have been telling me I’m not good enough since the day I was born.”
