We get the male obsession with boobs, it’s kind-of a natural thing. Ask.men.com reckon that a man’s attraction to a woman has a direct correlation to her breast size, it’s a no-brainer. So why on g_ds-green-world would a girl need to wear a badge that spruked her boob size in a bra shop?
A Swedish woman has won a gender discrimination case against her former employer because she was forced to wear a badge stating her bra size. The young woman worked at the Change lingerie store in the north-eastern town of Sundsvall. Despite her objections, she had to wear a sign stating her name, chest measurement and cup size while working there.
Change told the Swedish Labour Court the purpose of the badges was to help customers understand bra sizes. But the court ruled the requirement was discriminatory and the woman’s dignity had been “violated”. It ordered Change to pay 50,000 kronor – $AU7,400 – in damages, as well as the plaintiff’s legal fees, thats more than $AU3200 a boob :: More Boobs »»»»
