Dangly Earring Craze Snowballing

The following email, urging women to get their Christine Rankin styled glad rags on in support of women workers, is doing the rounds across the country. Meanwhile, broadcasters Robert Rakete and James Coleman both donned Rankinesque dangly earings on TV3’s The Panel last night, and Alliance MP Phillida Bunkle wowed Parliament’s debating chamber with a short skirt and a pair of weighty ear decorations. Is a fashion craze with a social message about to sweep the nation?

Women of the workforce unite!

Christine Rankin has exposed blatant sexism within the public service. She should not stand alone. It is time for all women in the workforce to make a show of solidarity and fight for freedom of expression in the workplace.

Christine may have made mistakes, she may not have been perfect but senior officials and Ministers have no right to criticise her performance based on her individual dress style.

Friday the 6th of July is the day all women in the workforce will be called on to make a show of strength.

Wear your shortest skirts wear the longest earrings, wear the clothes that
express you.

Remember Friday 6th July

the day we show the sexist men of this country that we will not tolerate their oppression.

Wear it loud wear it proud.

Lets go girls!!!!

Please send this message out to all of your friends.
