Employees of Honey Birdette, a lingerie store, protested outside its Melbourne shop on Thursday, December 8, claiming current and former staff had been sexually harassed during their employment.

According to a <a href="http://junkee.com/staff-melbourne-lingerie-store-protesting-sexual-harrassment-work/91730" target="_blank">report</a> by Junkee, Thursday’s demonstration followed a <a href="https://www.megaphone.org.au/petitions/honey-birdette-workers-need-safe-workplaces" target="_blank">petition</a> started by a former employee that claimed staff were “sexually harassed and intimidated by customers – and when these women spoke up, management told them to suck it up.” The petition, which also accuses the company of enforcing a sexist dress code, has been signed by 5,000 people.

“Enough women have been hospitalised as a result of Honey Birdette’s treatment,” a protester can be heard saying in the footage.
