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

Update on Leeds M&S/Hooters action

The wonderful feminist women and men of Leeds did a brilliant job last Friday making their feelings known at the M&S talk at their uni about how M&S had been 'supporting' women for decades.

I'm told: "It went really well and everyone attending the talk was really interested in the Boycott M&S campaign and lots of leaflets got given out. Apparently there was a glass wall separating the M&S people and Fem Soc, so Fem Soc got lots of evil looks from the M&S people and one person from M&S came outside to ask if they were students (because I guess if they weren't they would have tried to get them removed). ... I know it probably won't change much but it's good to show that students aren't just consumers, and that we object to our degrees being linked to M&S (and Hooters). It's good to annoy M&S wherever they go, maybe they will think twice next time!"
