Paisley’s daughter accuses Democratic Unionist Party of sex discrimination

The daughter of Northern Ireland protestant community leader Ian Paisley has accused him and other members of his political party of sexual discrimination over a failed job application.

Rhonda Paisley says she was not selected for a position within the Democratic Unionist Party’s (DUP) policy unit last year because of her gender, in a claim filed the Industrial Tribunals office in Belfast.

Rhonda Paisley, a former member of Belfast city council, has taken the case against the DUP’s chief executive but also named her father and other senior members of the party, according to reports.

A DUP spokesman said: “These are matters that are now in the hands of our legal team.”
