Bathing Suit Stunt in China Falls Flat with Flight Attendants

Washington, D.C. (December 31, 2015) - Flight attendants in China on Monday were required to model in bikinis as part of a flight attendant selection process. Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) International President Sara Nelson said: "If discrimination exists anywhere, it is a threat to women everywhere."

"This is not a fight just for the women of China. In this era of increased globalization and trade agreements that pit American workers against these abhorrent labor practices, our union understands this very real threat to Flight Attendants in the U.S. and around the world.

“We condemn those responsible for this publicity stunt at the expense of women everywhere. And we will engage with other unions, advocacy groups and anyone who defends equality to stamp out discrimination and the exploitation of women."

Watch a shocking reminder of the discrimination Flight Attendants have overcome and the threats to equality they face today.
