During the Prime Minister’s questions on Wednesday, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May absolutely shut down Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn when he attempted to use International Women’s Day against her.

“Tomorrow is International Women’s Day, a chance to both celebrate how far we’ve come on equality for women but also reflect on how far we have to go, not just in this country but around the world,” Corbyn began. The Labour leader then criticized May for meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, an alleged human rights violator, ahead of the holiday.

“Can I thank the right honorable gentleman for telling me that it is International Women’s Day tomorrow?” May cracked to laughter from the Conservative side.

“I think that’s what’s called ‘mansplaining,'” she commented. At her remark, the chamber erupted in laughter and jeers.

May defended the United Kingdom’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, citing the two nations’ historical and national security links.
