Marriage inequality has been a menace that is shrinking women in the society. The Honey Birdette’s employees formed a flash mob in Sidney CBD to demonstrate against marriage inequality. The mob protested in the streets, and their message seemed to be received by a lot of the residents most of who ultimately supported what they stood for! Interesting to note, the company received so much love for making such a bold move.
The Honey Birdette staff, workers, and models wanted the country to advocate for a plebiscite. The entire protest had been inspired by an incident which had affected a store with similar products they produce. The store had gotten complaints about their advert poster promoting a lingerie product from Honey Birdette. The allegations claimed that the poster had been inappropriate and would upset certain people.
It wasn’t fair that the store was attacked and property destroyed too. Monaghan, the managing director, and founder brought the women together to create the flash mob. For women to get their deserved glory and empower themselves. This was the easiest way they would have been heard.
There had been trolls going around spreading bad word on the company, claiming they dwelled their demonstration on hypocrisy since there had been allegations of disrespecting and providing no security for their workers. Monaghan denied the accusations and stated that nothing of the sort had happened and dismissed the case.
The Honey Birdette has been bashed now for the second time the first time being in 2014 when people wanted adult wear removed from the lingerie chain. It had lost its case then besides having no inappropriate motive. Never the less, this time he decided not to nod and agree but spread the word on equality. There are still people who are against the poster and the protest and that the poster should be pulled down due public standards but the supporters for this demonstration outweigh those against it.
