ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Women legislators are demanding that Turkey's deputy prime minister offers an apology for telling a legislator that she should be quiet because she is a woman.

Bulent Arinc told an opposition legislator who heckled him Wednesday: "Madam, shut up! As a woman you should shut up!"

Arinc was speaking at an emergency session of Turkey's parliament called to discuss terror attacks in the country. Women lawmakers protested the remark and asked for an apology.

It was the latest in a series of sexist gaffes by the deputy premier.

Last year, he drew ridicule for saying women should not laugh in public, not draw attention and should protect their "chasteness."

Women, including actress Emma Watson, reacted by posting photos of themselves laughing on social media.
