Naked academic Dr Victoria Bateman was at centre of sex discrimination case involving husband

Naked academic Dr Victoria Bateman – who stripped off on Good Morning Britain and the Today programme – was at the centre of a sex discrimination case involving her city high-flyer husband, MailOnline can reveal.

A female lawyer at Fidelity Worldwide Investment complained when anti-Brexit campaigner Dr Bateman’s husband James shared a nude portrait of his wife with colleagues.

Margaret Rowe took her ‘chauvinistic’ former employers to tribunal for seeing her as a ‘woman who did not know her place’ and unfairly dismissing her from her £184,000-a-year job.

She claimed that Mr Bateman, the firm’s Chief Investment Officer, was ‘objectifying women’ when he shared photographs of his wife’s portrait to junior female colleagues.

Economist Dr Bateman shocked GMB viewers by going naked with the words ”Brexit Leaves Britain Naked” written on her body.

Host Richard Madeley tried to keep a straight face as he read a pro-EU slogan that the academic scrawled across her skin. 

It comes just three days after she surprised Radio 4’s John Humphrys when she disrobed and then challenged Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg to a nude debate. 

Humphrys, who said, startled, ‘oh, I see you’re naked’, told listeners that Dr Bateman had the words ‘Brexit Leaves Britain Naked’ painted across her body.

It is not known whether the BBC was aware that Dr Bateman had intended to strip during the interview which saw her arrive wearing a coat and then disrobe in front of an unsuspecting Humphrys.

GMB had to blur her slogan that Brexit leaves Britain naked but she insisted that she was using visual power to make an important statement.  

‘As an economist I’m used to using words and equations in order to make an argument,’ she told the show.

‘I thought what I would do is condense down those thousands of words in one simple message that Brexit leaves Britain naked.’ 

She said that leading Leave campaigners would be unable to deliver the promises made to those who voted to exit the bloc and that Brexit was irrelevant to the daily struggle Britons face up and down the country in the form of foodbank use and poverty.  

Today she told presenter Richard Madeley that she had done ‘nothing illegal’ by disrobing in the radio studio.

Richard – who is standing in for Piers Morgan this week – told her that he didn’t think her display was particularly shocking but Penny Smith disagreed.

Dr Bateman said that naked people are on display ‘all the time’, from ‘scantily clad’ models to the ‘whole world of pornography’.

She insisted that the only thing that was shocking about her protest is that she’s a naked woman with a voice after years of a society controlled by men.   

But it isn’t just Brexit that sparks naked protest from Dr Bateman, who stripped off in a gender equality protest last year. 

At a talk entitled Feminism Meets Economics, she covered her breasts and genitals with only a handful of £5 and £20 notes.
