The Daily Mail’s Sexism Gets Its Comeuppance

For the benefit of readers abroad who may be unfamiliar with the British press, ‘The Daily Mail’ is one of the worst of our daily papers. When the tabloid covered Amanda Palmer’s recent performance at Glastonbury, they didn’t mention anything about the music that she played, and just wrote about a brief moment when her breast “escaped her bra like a thief on the run”. In response the singer wrote and performed a song last week accusing them of debasing women. Very witty and worthy of an entry in A Brief History of Nakedness! Watch via this link here:
