"No self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age," said Godfrey Bloom, a UK Independence Party MEP.
Mr Bloom, an investment fund manager from York, was speaking on his first day in Strasbourg - after being given a place on the Women's Rights Committee.
He said he wanted to deal with women's issues because "I just don't think they clean behind the fridge enough".
Later, Mr Bloom went on television to expand on his views on women's rights, saying: "The more women's rights you have, it's actually a bar to their employment.
He added: "That isn't politically incorrect, is it? But it's a fact of life. I know, because I am a businessman."
