It’s a lazy and rather pathetic way to engage event attendees which caters to the inaccurate notion that men are nothing more than atavistic creatures who must have their sexual urges titillated anywhere, anytime.
Why are booth babes still a thing at (some) Tech events?

THIS. While working at a tech startup that’s in the physical security space, we would go to the large security trade show. Of course there are still booth babes there. Not only is it sexist, but it’s a blatant insult to men’s intelligence. Some of these companies have $100k+ budgets for the show and booth babes is the best they can come up with??

As a side note, while at these shows I’m dressed exactly as my male colleagues yet I’ve been called “honey” and hassled for my number. So there’s also that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
