Taylor Swift's 'The Man' Referenced During Parliament's International Women's Day Debate

Taylor Swift‘s song is having an effect in politics!

The Lover singer-songwriter’s latest single, “The Man,” was referenced during International Women’s Day Debate in the House of Commons in Parliament on Thursday (March 5) in London, United Kingdom.

During the debate, members of the Parliament “said women deserve better pay, need strengthened protections against harassment and should be championed in the workplace. Among the many impassioned speeches,” according to the BBC.

“So that, in the words of the brilliant Taylor Swift, in her new song, woman aren’t left running as fast as they can wondering if they’d get their quicker if they were a man,” Liz Truss, Minister for Women and Equalities, said during the debate.

This isn’t the first time Liz Struss has made Taylor Swift-related headlines. One year before, she shared a selfie with Taylor Swift at the BAFTAs. See the photo!
