THE FINANCIAL TIMES
3 years ago today FT journalist Madison Marriage exposed sexual misconduct at The Presidents Club annual charity dinner. The event, with invitations exclusively extended to leading male figures in business, politics and entertainment, had over 360 guests tended by 130 ‘scantily dressed hostesses’. The fundraising dinner, now disbanded, had been a mainstay of London’s social calendar for 33 years, yet the activities had remained largely unreported.
In her undercover report Madison wrote that the hostesses were subject to groping, lewd comments, requests to join guests in their bedrooms, questions whether they were prostitutes and one attendee even exposing himself.
