Manchester United's New Women's Kit Has Been Labelled Sexist
The plunging neckline on the women's version of the new kit cuts far lower than on the men's.
Manchester United released their new Adidas kit last week, and the plunging neckline on the women's version of the shirt has caused controversy among fans.
Man United fan Helin was one of the first to point out the difference between the men's kit and the women's kit.
The neckline on the women's kit plunges down towards the Chevrolet logo, whereas on the men's kit it barely reaches the club crest and Adidas logo.
After being quoted in a Telegraph article about fans' "outrage" over the kit, Helin denied that she was outraged.
She's certainly not the only football fan to comment on the kit, though: People have been arguing from both sides of the fence.
Some said they were being forced to buy the men's version of the kit.
This isn't the first time Adidas has released a women's kit with a plunging neckline: The Chelsea kit for last season also featured one, though it doesn't cut as low as this season's Man United kit.
The Manchester Evening News conducted a poll of readers at the weekend, and 71% said they didn't think the kit was sexist.
And it later tweeted examples of readers' comments on the issue.
BuzzFeed UK contacted Adidas for a comment, and the sports firm gave the following statement:
"Adidas provides an adult shirt which is a replica of what the players wear. Based on research from fans, we also offer a women's shirt as part of our lifestyle range of products. This range has a slightly different design and fit to give fans a choice."
