Female graduates have revealed the sexist questions that they’ve been asked in job interviews as part of a photo series exposing discrimination in the workplace.
Employment law firm Thomas Mansfield asked graduates from 20 British universities to share the most bizarre and offensive things they’ve ever been asked whilst applying for jobs. Many of the women’s responses show that sexism is very much alive some workplaces.
Sexist questions asked of the women include whether they would be willing to flirt with customers as part of the job, if they are planning on having children and intimate details about their periods.
Julie Goodway, a lawyer at the firm, told The Independent: "Unfortunately the experience of those surveyed are not one-offs. We are often asked how interviewees should respond to questions like these."
She says that such questioning can amount to sex discrimination if it is unlikely that male candidates will be asked such questions.
