Lawyer Accused Of Sexism For Calling Woman's LinkedIn Picture 'Stunning'

Tired of widespread sexism, a British woman decided to fight back after she received a LinkedIn message from a lawyer who, instead of reaching out to her about her professional skills, complimented her for her profile picture.

After receiving the misogynistic message from 57-year-old Alexander Carter-Silk, Charlotte Proudman (27) replied to the man explaining him how inappropriate and objectifying his message was. If this wasn't enough, Ms. Proudman exposed the lawyer by publishing their conversation on Twitter, where everybody can read it and learn from it.

Mr. Carter-Silk's message pointed out that, while it might be "horrendously politically incorrect" to say, the woman's picture was stunning and it wins "the prize for the best LinkedIn picture" he has ever seen. In her reply, Ms. Proudman told the man:

"The eroticisation of women's physical appearance is a way of exercising power over women. It silences women's professional attributes as their physical appearance becomes the subject."
