Grrrlie Link Round-Up

Who says there’s a war on women? You can keep up with such things via Deanna’s curated collections: Herstory & Feminism.

Deanna’s also talking (blogging) about the right to bare breasts and how to learn burlesque moves from Ellion Ness.

Lauren Odes, who was fired from lingerie company Native Intimates for being too busty, is now suing:

“When my supervisors suggested that I tape down my breasts, I asked ‘Are you kidding me?'” Odes said. “The supervisor said, ‘Just cover up a little more.'”

Similarly, Odes’ female supervisor also asked her to wear a bathrobe while fulfilling her duties of data entry.

“She told me to sit at my desk and wear it all day. I felt completely humiliated,” Odes said. “She put the bathrobe on me and tied the belt and I returned to my desk wearing it.”

…Odes believes her wardrobe was suitable for a lingerie company that sells “thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say ‘hot’ in the buttocks area.”
