Sexist of the Year – 2012

Sexist of the Year – 2012

 

On the International Women’s Day, the Russian pressure group "Pro feminism" made public the results of the open Internet-voting on the Sexist of the year award. Since 2010, the award is given to individual and corporate authors of the most offensive sexist statements. This year’s winners were announced during the meeting organized by women’s rights activists and brutally suppressed by the police.

 

The first prize in the individual nomination was offered to German Sterligov for his hate speech against the law on gender equality, in particular, for claiming that a woman wearing a “modest” long skirt is “genetically impossible” to be raped, and referring to women fighting for equal rights as “elderly repulsive filth”.
