Judge rules that calling women 'birds' is sexist



A judge who ruled on a lawsuit from a former Barclays banker against the firm, has stated that calling women "birds" is "plainly sexist".



The former bank employee Anca Lacatus who is now set to receive compensation over her treatment, said his boss continously used the term despite her repeated requests for him to stop.



Anca said the continouse use of the word made her feel uncomfortable during her first job in banking after graduating from university.



Defending himself before the employment tribunal, her boss James Kinghorn said he assumed she saw it as light-hearted banter.Latest Post
