Civil servant loses sexism tribunal after colleague called her a ‘clever woman’

Calling a female civil servant a “clever woman” is not sexist, a tribunal has ruled.

Christine Rodgers tried to sue the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for sex discrimination after a senior Army officer made the comment.

Lieutenant Colonel Simon Watkins, the Commanding Officer at the MoD’s Defence School of Transport (DST), said Ms Rodgers was “a clever woman” but could be “manipulative”.
