via BBC News – Brazil minidress row student compensated.

Blast from the past. Slight right turn away from the topic of trafficking. This is more of a women’s rights, gender inequality post. I wrote a HuffPo piece on the incident that the above article refers to last fall when this story first broke. I am glad the university is being forced to compensate Arruda. She was a paying student, a customer in a sense, she deserved to be treated with a greater level of respect by the institution. But $23,600? Does that even cover the attorney’s fees for a case that took a nearly a year to litigate? This BBC story indicates that her attorneys plan to appeal the amount of the judgement. Their initial request was about $5ook. Check out my HuffPo piece on the Geisy Arruda incident from last fall. “Sexism Masquerades Behind a Mini Skirt” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chelsealyn-rudder/sexism-masquerades-behind_b_352277.html
