Australian TV Personality performs an on air sexism experiment for a year without anyone noticing



Australian morning tv host Karl Stefanovic, known mostly for chasing seagulls and eating one of the worlds hottest pies, has been conducting an experiment on sexism live on television for the past year without anybody noticing.

The Channel nine Morning Show host has been wearing the same knock-off Burberry suit for the past year without a peep from the public while co-star, Lisa Wilkinson regularly receives unsolicited fashion advice via email and social media.

Stefanovic notes how, as a man, he is judged on his sense of humour and how he does his job, whereas his female co-anchor also has the added pressure of constantly being judged on her state of dress, sense of style and cut/colour of her hair.
