The UK does not want 'Hooters'. It is a retrograde step for a country dedicated to gender equality

National Press Coverage on Hooters

IN the Sunday Telegraph:

And in the Independent on Sunday (although their angle is purely on the mumsnet side of things, so the vast amount of campaigning BFN have been doing doesn't get a mention)

Interesting to see how the national press are able to write balanced and accurate stories about this issue, without suggesting that feminists are imposing their views on others, or have an axe to grind. Perhaps our local press could take note!


  1. Good work team! Though I don't object personally to the chain because of the uniform, I object to it because they won't hire people who are survivor's of domestic violence who still have visible bruises because it doens't go with the brand. That's far more damaging to women than a pair of orange shorts.

  2. cheers BookElf!

    yes, papers always go for an angle don't they? but nice to get supportive coverage.

    and i object to the fact you are fired if you put on weight and you are expected to nod and smile in response to sexual harassment.
