Reporter Wears Same Suit For A Year To Show Sexism Problems [Video]
Karl Stefanovic, an Aussie TV personality, has worn the same suit all year. Not because he's lazy, but because he's proving a point about sexism.
He started by wearing a knockoff Burberry suit on his birthday, and wore it every day, for the whole year. So what did he figure out? He said,
No one has noticed; no one gives a s--t, but women, they wear the wrong color and they get pulled up. They say the wrong thing and there's thousands of tweets written about them."
He has exposed an unpleasant truth that female reporters are often judged by their looks and clothes more than their news reporting.
This is just one small example of how everyday sexism is very much alive. Salute to Karl for not only doing this, but standing up to tell everyone about it afterward. He will definitely be under the microscope now.
