I can't think of a more obvious display of sexism than firing a woman for shaving hear head.
First, it's obviously totally acceptable for a man to do it. No male would be told it's not professional for them to wear a shaved head at work or would be asked to wear a wig at work.
Second, it reinforces the absurd notion that women are to be "pretty" at work, according to the male traditional hetero definition of attractiveness, and that they are under added duress to conform to that image in the service industry and are often hired specifically for that purpose (think earl's, hooters, etc.)
in other words. if you are a woman and have a job, you are at risk of losing it should you be deemed no longer attractive regardless of your abilities. what if you lose your hair? what if you get pregnant and put on a little weight, what if you don't like to wear toxic makeup, shave your armpits or legs?
and that the human rights commission doesn't see any issue here? that is SERIOUSLY fucked.
If you live in winnipeg or know someone who does, please pass this info along, post it to your facebook and get people to stop eating at SAWATDEE THAI.
