LEEDS WOMEN FAIL TO PUT HARVEY NICKS IN DOG HOUSE

Leeds city council's women's committee has failed in getting a Harvey Nichols advertising campaign censured, reports the Yorkshire Post (p3).

The women's committee had complained to the Advertising Standards Authority about a poster showing a woman wearing a pink dog lead, with the slogan 'Harvey Nichols Leeds (not follows)'.

The committee complained that the poster was degrading to women by implying that they were not human and needed to be kept under control.

However, the ASA said the advert was unlikely to cause serious or widespread offence, and therefore rejected the complaint.
