    Does anyone want to meet up at Tesco Metro Crouch End, London N8?

  3. Maria Villa says:

    It is tragic that in this century this blatant sexist disrespect for women still exists. I would like my children to not have to see these stereotypical images when they enter your supermarket so..go on..be brave and make a stand!

  4. Laura Kielty says:

    Any plans for action in grimby or Cleethorpes?
    Don’t relish lone ranger approach

  5. Sylvia says:

    Great action to stop omnipresent sexism. Thanks a lot for giving a signal example
