A former head of the Greens has been accused of calling women in the workplace "powerful prostitutes" and "fat hairy lesbians."

Greg Barber, the brother-in-law of federal leader Richard Di Natale, had a "men's room" in his office that they were not allowed to enter, a former staff member said.

Former parliamentary advisor Liz Ingham settled a case of sex discrimination against Barber outside the court in June last year, but has now decided to speak.

A separation agreement signed by Ms. Ingham prevents her from speaking about the case, but does not cover her husband, Trevor Coon, ABC News reported.

"There was a community leader who was working closely with The Greens on politics and Greg Barber continually referred to her as a" power p **** ", said Mr. Coon.

& # 39; Things like calling a member of Parliament to a & # 39; Fat hairy lesbian & # 39; and repeatedly, not wanting to use your name, but call it repeatedly.

I would not use the word feminist. She was always a feminist with hairy legs like "you're one of those hairy-legged feminists, right?"

Mr. Coon said that the main room in Mr. Barber's office was commonly called the "men's room" and that women could only enter if they were invited.

His wife was isolated in the office for a year, banned from going to parliament or attending meetings, and was forced to have lunch at her desk, Cook said.

When he himself complained about the accusations, Mr. Cook could not discuss them with other members of the Greens, he said.

Ms. Ingham, who was paid $ 56,000 in the agreement with Victorian Parliamentary Services, said she broke her silence to prevent similar behavior from occurring.

A new investigation into the Victoria Greens (pictured is her head office) about the handling of complaints is worrisome, since it does not cover harassment or sexism based on gender, said Ms. Ingham.

New research on the Victoria Greens on handling complaints is worrisome, as it does not cover harassment or sexism based on gender, said Ms. Ingham.

The investigation was triggered by the claims of several women that their complaints about alleged sexual misconduct were mistreated.

Barber, who resigned from the Victoria Greens presidency two months after the agreement, said he was legally barred from discussing the case.

He personally contributed $ 9,000 to the settlement, and was required to undergo sex discrimination and unconscious bias training with another male employee.

The agreement came after Ms. Ingham threatened to bring her complaints of intimidation and sex discrimination to the Federal Court.

Due to her emotional and physical health at that time, Ms. Ingham felt that she had no choice but to take the agreement, she said.

Daily Mail Australia contacted Barber and the Victorian Greens to get their comments.
