‘Sexist’ poster taken down

A poster for the women’s Euskal Emakumeen Bira race has been pulled after it wasEmakumeen Bira kartel_content deemed to be sexist. The Basque Women’s Institute issued the complaint, which resulted in the poster being taken down.

The poster in question features a short of last year’s race winner Katarzyna Niewiadoma aiming a kiss at the camera. President of the Biscayne Cycling Federation (Federación Vizcaína de Ciclismo) Agustín Ruiz defended the poster, saying that he didn’t believe it was sexist, but chose to take it down to avoid conflict.

“We are changing the picture so as not to not lead to the submission of any complaints against the Emakunde and things get any worse,” Ruiz told the website mugalari.info, adding that “as an organization we want to avoid conflict.”

The Euskal Emakumeen Bira will take place between April 13-17. Katarzyna Niewiadoma beat Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio to the 2015 title.
