Sexist, maybe, but by whose standards? My European girlfriend keeps telling me how stuff like this is not uncommon over there, and is not usually seen as sexist. Of course that’s a place where almost all the beaches are topless and 60 year old guys wear speedos. (And I ain’t talkin about the ones in Sting’s shape.)

Note: we are talking about a business event, not private activities.
Copying from the ISC West post -> A number of women shared experiences that can help explain why this is a serious issue:
