Woman Speaks Out About Workplace Discrimination After Getting Fired for Being "Too Attractive"

London-based freelancer Emma Hulse speaks out about workplace discrimination after getting fired from UNIT TV for being "too attractive."

Workplace discrimination is still a prevalent problem in our society—especially for women. Most often, the attack is subtle: It exists in the form of mildly sexist coworkers or of smaller paychecks (hey, gender pay gap, we see you). Less common is blatant discrimination, as 24-year-old freelancer Emma Hulse reportedly experienced at her former TV job.

According to Refinery29, Hulse was just minutes into her shift as a camera operator at London-based network UNIT TV when a manager abruptly sent her home for being—get this—too attractive.

[post_ads]Hulse spoke to the Evening Standard about the incident, explaining: “My agent text[ed] me that I’m no longer required. I got [to work] and spoke to the line manager and he asked me, ‘Are you a model? Are you not doing catwalks, why are you not at the front of house?’...I was wearing a lipstick but from my perspective I was not inappropriate. I was wearing a shirt and trousers. I really didn’t think I looked inappropriate.”

After firing her, the sexist manager allegedly asked for Hulse’s number and suggested they go out for a drink. Because that’s what every woman wants: to date a misogynist who doesn’t believe attractive women can also be intelligent, hard workers. Ugh.

Hulse was, understandably, bewildered. As she told the Evening Standard, “I was quite disappointed to be sent home. I didn’t really know what to do...I work for many different companies and no one has [ever] sent me home because of the way I look.”

Adam Luckwell, who owns the company from which Hulse was unceremoniously dismissed, confirmed the young woman’s story and said he had since fired the manager who harassed her.
