After the recent Financial Times’ investigation into the appalling practices that have been occuring for decades at The Presidents Club charity events, some people still claim that female hostesses at the recent charity dinner weren’t actually sexually harassed.
I’m a temp worker & my agency asks me to dress sexily (inc what knickers to wear) for a job as a “hostess” at a boozy all male dinner where, the agency tells me, I may be groped. I agree to do the job.— Julia Hartley-Brewer (@JuliaHB1) January 24, 2018
A woman’s prerogative, surely? #PresidentsClub
The Presidents Club ‘men only’ charity dinner takes place every year at London’s plush Dorchester Hotel. It is attended by top professionals from a range of sectors, including leading British bankers and businessmen, property developers and so on. The only women allowed in are specially recruited ‘hostesses.’
