'Sweatshop' claims over politicians' slogan T-shirts

The charity behind a pro-feminism T-shirt worn by leading politicians has vowed to investigate claims that the item was made in sweatshop conditions.

The Mail on Sunday reported the £45 "This is what a feminist looks like" shirt is made by women paid 62p an hour on the island of Mauritius.

Equality campaigning group the Fawcett Society said it was "disappointed" to learn of the allegations.
