The owner of theology degree and a pair of breasts sparked sexism debate. It happened after one of the most popular contests for UK higher education students - University Challenge. Don’t you think the Typical Student team can stay away from the case?
Although University Challenge was made to refine students’ development and highlight the achievements, this time, the contest was focused on the other point. 29-year-old Katherine Perry, Oxford team captain, was sexualized online during the US and long after. It took place during the 2nd round of competition. The guest of honor was Katherine’s low-cut dress.
How Did Twitterverse React?
As always, Twitterverse reacted immediately. Tabloid journalists didn’t stay aside as well. Monday night, there were more and more eye-popping GIFs and images appearing. Now Katherine is facing a real sexism row but she stays strong and urges netizents to respect female brains.
