A New Zealand lawyer has taken to wearing dresses in the courtroom to protest alleged male bias within the judicial system.
Rob Moodie, 67, is a lawyer in a long-running case involving a bridge collapse on a farm on New Zealand's North Island. He arrived at Wellington's High Court on Monday in a blue women's suit, stockings, and a diamond brooch.
"I'm objecting to the male ethos that is dominating this case and from now on I'm going to be dressing as a girl in my daily life," Moodie told Reuters.
Moodie, who wants the court to address him as "Ms. Alice," said he is trying to highlight the domination of the "old boys' network" in the judiciary. The bald, mustachioed former rugby player said his wife and three children support his protest.
"The more this goes on and the deeper the cover-up gets, the frocks will get prettier," he told Reuters.
