Hong Kong Sex Discrimination Laws Challenge Popular Newspaper

Hong Kong's Apple Daily printed an advertisement for "several pretty female reporters," in an apparent violation of the country's new anti-discrimination employment laws. The new anti-discrimination laws prohibit employers from citing sex, marital status, or lack of disability as a condition of employment, but allow employers to request workers of a specific age or race. The publisher of the popular Apple Daily newspaper will be the first organization tried under the new discrimination laws.
