KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri jail employee says she was placed on leave after putting her bra through an X-ray machine as she was getting screened into work. Charlotte Hardin says she had to take off her bra because it set off the metal detector at Jackson County Detention Center. She says the facility put her on leave in June, saying undergarments can't be X-rayed. She hasn't been given a return date.
Carla Jce Hurtado: That's terrible. How sexist, humiliating and insulting. So many women must wear supportive bras that include metal wiring. Follow up initial screening failure with a wand. Women exist. Correct support in undergarments is a medical issue. Poor support can result in future back, shoulder and breast tissue problems. I am outraged. This should've been figured out decades ago
