Yesterday I was in Canary Wharf, one of the most iconic buildings in the UK, engaged in an interview with Alex Hudson, a reporter working for the Mirror. His article, and my reflections on it, are here.
When I entered the building, I was struck by a common characteristic of the four receptionists, and took a photograph of them – here.
All the receptionists were young, attractive, cheerful, and of the female persuasion. Three of them were blondes. Shocking. Deeply shocking, to be honest. It shouldn’t be allowed.
We invite three ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ award winners – Caroline Criado-Perez, Special Snowflake (Laura Bates), and Roz Hardie – to launch a campaign for Canary Wharf receptionists to reflect the diversity of British citizens. They should demand more receptionists who are:
– middle-aged, or older
– not blonde
