They even get better libraries at Harvard 

The days of the spinster librarian seem to be over.
A black Harvard librarian who claims her boss said she was too ``sexy'' to get promoted has hit the university with a race and gender discrimination suit.

...her female supervisor told her in December 2001 that her ``sexy outfits,'' ``tight clothing'' and ``low cut blouses,'' coupled with an alleged bad reputation, were holding her back.

Library honchos had ``heard things through the grapevine'' about her, the supervisor allegedly said.

[The] suit says she wears the same styles as young white female librarians.

Surely this is just part of Love Your Body Day. (Hat Tip: Newmark's Door.)
