Fury at sexism

ON THURSDAY of this week we were to be subjected to the sexist Miss World contest on Channel 5. The return of this cattle market in recent years is a reflection of how "New Lad" magazines and TV programmes have made sexism "fashionable".

A growing number of people are not prepared to tolerate such sexism and planned a protest at this year's event.

  • Demonstrate against Miss World, Thursday 30 November. Assemble 5.45pm, North Greenwich tube.
