Here's the 'shocking' list
'You should have stayed on maternity leave for another nine months. Actually you should get pregnant again'.
'Had cancer, been a pain, and is now pregnant'. (A phrase allegedly used in an internal e-mail).
'The firm should sack you all and get in some better looking recruits, rather than you old bags'.
'We'll use X as our tethered goat'.
'I know where I would like to wrap her locks'.
'I'm all for this hiring women thing, but not if it's going to cost me three of my men every time you can't do something'.
'Women belong at home cleaning floors'.
'You Jewish girls get hot for guys with beards, don't you ?'
'I wanna take you in the stairwell'.
'They (your breasts) are big, and you probably didn't even feel it!'.
The most classic discrimination comments, however, were not part of a gender claim hearing. The comments are alleged to have been made a few years back when a Daily Mail reporter went undercover as a secretary in an unnamed City investment bank. Her job interview was said to be something of a formality. The undercover reporter's interviewer allegedly said: 'You'll do all right....It's the fat and ugly girls who have a hard time of it'.
When the 'secretary' told her future boss that she was no good with figures, he apparently retorted: 'You won't need to know about figures - you will be THE figure'.
And now we know why many women think most men are sexist (especially those who work in the financial markets industry).
