Germany: Sexism debate prompts surge in complaints

FDP parliamentary group chairman Rainer Bruederle leaves the press breakfast of the German Liberal Democratic Party, FDP, in Berlin, Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013. Germany's official anti-discrimination body said an online uproar over the senior politician's alleged sexist remarks has prompted a surge in complaints about workplace harassment. Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency chief Christine Lueders said a weeklong flurry of tweets using the hashtag "Aufschrei" — German for outcry — appears to have emboldened women to speak out about sex discrimination at work.
