The fashion designer and one-time women's rights campaigner Miuccia Prada told reporters last year that she believed feminism no longer existed. She may now be rethinking that view.
Attempts by Prada, the fashion house founded by her grandfather and for which she is a leading designer, to court the label-hungry Asian market hit a major setback when dozens of women protested at the company's flotation on the Hong Kong stock market, citing a dispute between the Italian brand and a senior employee who claims to have been discriminated against on grounds of appearance.
