Cambridge Scholar Bares All to Protest Brexit

July 5, 2016

An economics scholar at the University of Cambridge attended a faculty meeting naked last week in protest of the British vote to leave the European Union, the Independent and the Telegraph reported. Victoria Bateman, a lecturer and fellow in economics, had the words “Brexit leaves Britain naked” written on her stomach and breasts. She reportedly sat through the two-hour economics faculty meeting without colleagues mentioning her nudity.

Bateman did not immediately return an Inside Higher Ed message seeking comment on Monday.
