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

Protest against M&S in Leeds

Thank you to the wonderful people of Leeds who have spotted that a representative from M&S's lingerie department is giving a talk at their university on Friday, November 5, called: "M&S Lingerie: Supporting Women Since 1926". Pah! We know that's not true.

Not content to let this event lie, the inspirational folk at Leeds have organised a protest - read more about it here. And there is an excellent Facebook page that someone at Leeds has created here, which is extremely informative about other reasons why M&S is such a misguided and hypocritical company.

Including a quote from 2009, in which M&S CEO Stuart Rose told The Observer: "Girls today have never had it so good, right? Apart from the fact that you've got more equality than you ever can deal with, the fact of the matter is that you've got real democracy and there really are no glass ceilings, despite the fact that some of you moan about it all the time.” 

Thank you to the people of Leeds. Please keep us updated with your hard work.
