    The women who parade around boxing rings ought to be banned as well.
    Well, Clovis, your response to this post is correct on one level. It does look like I’m advocating restricting the types of employment that women may do. However, it’s not really the employment that I object to but the conditions under which it takes place and the attitudes associated with it. But, I suspect that you knew that. Do you not think that at some point there is a link between women being employed for their attractiveness and sexuality and how mistreat them? To twist Robin Morgan’s aporism using women’s sexuality for employment is the theory and sexual harassment is the practice.

    . I was asking that if you did any research on the question of womens pay in the modelling industry that you share your methodology with us as well as your results... but... are you telling me that the report you cited doesn't discuss its methodology? Does it fail to show the actual data it has for each data point too?
    If that's the case then no wonder you don't want to discuss it further, and I must say, I'd be pretty embarrassed by citing it too if I were you.
    I didn’t say that I did any research on the level of women’s pay in modelling industry so your question and observations are irrelevant.

    What I did in my original three paragraph post was to note that the perpetrators of sexual harassment were mostly men. Secondly, point out that it is an issue that trade unions are interested in and suggested one or two reasons why people may experience sexual harassment The final paragraph was a dig at the Tory party.

    I posted the two links in the hope that they might be helpful to someone at some level. I found in my former employment working for a trade union and in employment as a branch secretary that leaving documents and posters about was like planting seeds. At some point someone might read, respond and seek further information.

    The two links were not posted as examples of how to do academic research but as something that people might find accessible and helpful I’m not in the slightest bit embarrassed in citing it. Why would I be? I’d be more embarrassed in making snide remarks designed to show that you’re a clever chap.

    My understanding of the Report was that it was conducted by researchers from the Trades Union Congress and the Everyday Sexism Project and may have involved YouGov. This should allow you with the scope to to make more snide comments about research methodology.

    Incidentally, I found that whenever I took complaints through the official complainant’s procedure at my place of employment that all complaints were dismissed as misunderstanding, fertile imagination, misinterpretation of innocent actions etc. A common reaction at the time was for people to tell me such complaints would harm a man’s career, his marriage etc. The issue was taken seriously only when we went directly to the Employment Tribunal and won.

    Does this mean that all the local councils and all the publicly funded organisations should return their funding.
    Or are we certain that every penny gleaned by the Government through Income Tax, Value Added Tax and National Insurance Contributions is clean?
    The difference is charity donations are voluntary, wheras what you quote is compulsory.
    Those with a choice might be less likely to contribute to Great Ormond Street if they feel its already funded by dirty money?

    Why donate to Great Ormond Street? It's a London hospital. Why not donate to your local children's Hospital. For instance, there is Alder Hey in Liverpool

    Indeed there's a lot to be said for donating to your local hospital but of course GOSH is a specialist hospital that takes patients in from all over the country not just London, hence the reason for its national fund raising campaign.

But by a privately funded newspaper. The press they like to censor and threaten with massive fines for 'invasion of privacy'
