UK: Dismay over lack of action on ‘sexist’ sign

The offending sign

A father of two is calling for action over signs he has branded as sexist in a Daventry car park.

The signs in Bowen Square designate certain bays as ‘Mother and child parking only’ alongside a symbol of an adult in a dress with a child.

Ian Thomas, from Weedon, says they should be changed for the more neutral ‘parent and child’ signs seen elsewhere.

After being frustrated by a lack of action from the site’s owners Colliers International, Mr Thomas has got in touch with Daventry’s MP and the Council for Sexual Equality.
