Feminist groups lose battle to have strip club closed

Home Affairs Correspondent

Female strippers are celebrating after the club they work in had its licence renewed – despite a campaign by feminist groups to have it closed down.

Opponents argued that the club promotes harmful attitudes to women and hired private investigators who filmed alleged sexual acts taking place inside the premises.

But those who work at the Spearmint Rhino club in Sheffield say they enjoy their work and it enables them to look after their families.
