Caitlin Stasey slams ‘discriminatory’ fashion designers

FEMINIST campaigner Caitlin Stasey has criticised designers for making 'allowances for men's genitalia and not women's' when manufacturing clothing.

In a series of videos posed on Instagram, the former Neighbours star, 27, said she had "been having a consistent problem" with jeans.

Wearing pair of blue denim jeans, Los Angeles-based Stasey pointed out that they were riding up her crotch, describing the lack of design consideration around women's bodies as "a bit discriminatory".

"I do feel like it's a bit discriminatory, because, like, they make allowances for men's genitalia, but women's jeans do not," Stasey said, of the "camel toe".

The Melbourne-raised actor added: "I personally don't mind, but it is, like, unmistakeable.'

Stasey, who founded feminist site herself.com and most recently starred in US cop drama APB, has been an outspoken advocate about women's rights.

She has also championed the "free the nipple' movement on social media.
