  • The Oberbayern nightclub on the Spanish island of Marjora distributed T-shirts over the summer that showed a man shoving a “problem” woman. In one panel, a man and woman stand side by side with the caption “Problem?” In the next panel, the man is pushing the woman down and the caption reads “No problem.” Now a Spanish politician is investigating whether the club broke any gender equality laws by giving out the shirts.
