Court Says Short-Skirt Rule Not Sexist

MADRID (Reuters) - Hostesses on Spanish high-speed trains will have to continue wearing above-the-knee skirts after the country's High Court threw out a complaint that the dress code was sexist, judicial sources said on Thursday.

The court ruled it was reasonable for the Spanish High Speed (AVE) train service to require female employees to wear skirts two centimeters above the knee and ban them from using trousers.

The practice suited "a new and modern means of transport such as the AVE," the court ruled.

The ruling quashed a previous decision by a lower court in Barcelona which upheld a charge of sexism against the dress code after a complaint by a trade union.




That's my kind of country!
