Feminist Germiane Greer spontaneously combusted in Starbucks yesterday afternoon when she read that a woman had been denied a job by a marketing company, but then realised it was because she’d included a bikini pic in her application.
Marketing company Kickass Masterminds posted an Instagram slide – since removed – of applicant Emily Clow, along with advice on professionalism.
‘Do not share your social media with a potential employer if this is the kind of content on it’ it said.
Ms Greer (as she insists on being called) began by tutting and smugly declaring to a couple of men in suits that ‘this is just typical of the male-centric workplace that thinks women are only good for one thing and will only acknowledge them if most of their body is on display.’
Once she read on though she is said to have ‘spat cappuccino all over the men and choked on her pannettone’ as the rage came over her and she emitted more steam than the espresso machine. And with so much confused anger pulsing through her there was only one possible outcome and, soon she was sacrificed to the feminist cause.
The company’s post has sparked debate with many women saying Ms Clow was wrong to send the image, and 100% of men saying they see no problem with it.
The company’s website and social accounts have now been deleted or set to private.
And Ms Clow has been inundated with offers of employment in garages and on building sites.
