Tab airbrushes women from sabbatical officer photos
Following the Orthodox Jewish newspaper’s airbrushing of female world leaders from photos of the Charlie Hebdo vigil in Paris, The Edinburgh Tab has followed suit by modifying photos of EUSA officials to remove all female sabbatical officers from pictures.
This has resulted in the Tab solely publishing pictures of Vice President of Academic Affairs Dash Sekhar.
Speaking to Flipside, Dash Sekhar admitted that he was “really pleased about what the Tab had done,” because he could “use it as a case study in my Gender Studies course next year.”
Any attempt to gain a statement from Tab reporters was mainly met with disdain, with one member of the Tab’s editorial team chucking empty bottles of champagne from the roof of the New Club, whilst shouting insults about The Student newspaper.
Another attempted interview ended with the Tab editor threatening to call the security from the Dutch Consulate situated underneath his New Town apartment.
When asked her opinion on the matter, EUSA President Briana Pegado could not provide a full statement due to her touring of America in preparation for her 2016 Democratic Party nomination, but sent Flipside a press release about Horticulture, Edinburgh’s newest club night and how it will shake the foundations of the establishment.
