Women post breast pictures online after Oz PM Julia Gillard criticised
New York: Hundreds of women were motivated to protest by posting pictures of their breasts online, after Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was criticized for showing cleavage.
According to News.com.au, Australian columnist Grace Collier sparked the brouhaha on Sunday after telling a panel on Australia’s ABC Radio National that Gillard should show less skin in the workplace, the Huffington Post.
Collier said that she doesn’t think it’s appropriate for a Prime Minister to be showing her cleavage in parliament.
Collier’s comments frustrated blogger Jennifer Wilson, who suggested that women tweet images of their breasts, along with the hashtag #ConvoyOfCleavage, in the hope that the photos would “stamp out this irrational horror of the female breast” through “immersion therapy.”
The Internet rose enthusiastically to the challenge.
Soon, feminist Facebook group “Destroy the Joint” had created a montage to the movement, using some of the hundreds of cleavage photos posted by protesting women.
