Dress Code at at the BBVA Awards

BFTF heard on Twitter that the dress code for the recent BBVA Frontiers of Knowledge Awards was "men: dark suit, women: short dress" - which seemed a little sexist. So sent an email to them as shown below :

Dear BBVA

I've heard that the dress code for your recent awards event was "men: dark suit, women: short dress"

Is this true?

Do you really insist that all female attendees have to wear a SHORT DRESS?

What message do you think this sends out?

Can you confirm that a more sensible dress code will be used for your next awards ceremony?

Having had no response, send another email to nudge them along, this time on their web feedback form. You can send one too, if you like.
