Barrister seeks public apology for 'sexist message'

Barrister Charlotte Proudman has told the BBC she wants a public apology from lawyer Alexander Carter-Silk, who said her LinkedIn profile picture was ''stunning''.

Speaking to Newsnight's Evan Davis, she said the remark was ''sexist and inappropriate''.

She said she was not on the professional networking site "to be objectified, demeaned or trivialised''.

Alexander Carter-Silk said his comments had been misconstrued and that he was commenting on the professional quality of the photograph.
