“This screenshot was sent to me and my colleagues in an attempt to shame and watch over my body. Well I’m taking my power back, ”Sidaway wrote in the tweet. “For the nameless computer warriors who try to downsize women in one outfit or part of the body – this generation of women does not represent harassment.”
In the tweet, there are two photos: one of Sidaway from the TV news, as well as an image of the torso of a woman wearing a plunging neckline – much deeper than what Sidaway wore on air.
In the screenshot, the email had the subject line “BREAKING NEWS”.
