The Houston Chronicle has a federal discrimination lawsuit against them for terminating a reporter who worked as a topless dancer. Former Houston Chronicle society reporter Sarah Tressler has reportedly filed a complaint against the newspaper.
With her well-known attorney, Gloria Allred, Tressler claimed that she was discriminated against because she’s a woman. According to Allred, Tressler’s claim has tremendous weight: “Most exotic dancers are female, so to terminate an employee because that employee had previously been an exotic dancer would have an inverse impact on women, since it’s a female-dominated occupation. Terminations like this would also discourage women from trying to improve their lives,” Allred said to media outlets.
Tressler, who worked as an exotic dancer at a club in Houston also wrote for the Houston Chronicle at the same time. She also penned her experiences as a dancer in a blog titled “Diary of an Angry Stripper”.
As of this week, the Chronicle said they hadn’t seen the complaint, so they could not offer comment.
