Pierce Morgan has been fired from the BBC for replacing the word “fisherman” with “fisherman” to remove the word “men” from job descriptions. Ashley Mullencher, a woman fisherman, did not ask her co – workers if there was anything wrong with the word, saying it was “irrelevant.” Pierce said: “You’re actually a boat fisherman, so you’re one of these rare women fishermen, and you’d like to call a fisherman.”
Speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Ms Mullencher said: “I love it.
“I do not see the problem of being called a fisherman if you are a woman.”
Co-host Susanna Reid asked: “How many of you are there?”
Miss Mullencher continued: “I am in Norfolk, working on a boat, which is a boating boat, so we go fishing for wheels, crabs, and ellipticals.

“I think there are about six in the UK.
“Some of them are doing different types of fishing on my Instagram, but not really a lot.”
Pierce asked: “Is there any problem in calling any of the six fishermen?”
Miss Mullencher replied: “I did not ask them because I do not think it is relevant.”
Co-host Susanna Reid spoke: “The figures show two percent.”
Pierce continued: “Apparently but has anyone seen this? I don’t think I have, but the whole language has changed from fisherman to fisherman.”
“There are some jobs that women don’t like to do, are there?
“Perhaps on a trawler in the North Sea, rough and tough, it is not on the list of things to do for the Equality Brigade.
“I want to find out, are there really any women working on trawler fishing boats?”
