Media captionHow The President Club scandal unfolded
A scandal surrounding a men-only charity dinner where hostess were allegedly groped has raised questions about all-male business events – and whether they have a place in the 21 st century.
Are all-male assembles – where the only women are hired hostess – acceptable if they create much-needed funding for charity?
Scores of political leaders and business leaders say no.
Jo Swinson, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrat, said the Chairpeople Club dinner for 300 rich businessmen was proof of a “rotten, sexist culture” in parts of the business community.
And Maria Miller, chair of the women and equalities committee, said industries were paying “lip service to equality issues” by still holding men-only events.
