Men are showing up to the Wing and women are pissed

Ladies, leave your man at home. The Wing was supposed to be the ultimate sanctuary for women: decidedly feminine in design, with walls and furniture in shades of millennial pink and a thermometer set at a women’s-clothing-friendly 72 degrees.

Excerpts from article:

…Critics of the Wing were quick to point out the lack of diversity in the spaces, but the company’s expansion and popularity has brought up a completely different issue that was never expected to arise: straight men wanting to come in and hang out.

…The problem, multiple members have told The Post, is that the men physically take up too much space with their bigger bodies and belongings.

…This, coupled with a lawsuit brought by a 53-year-old man earlier this year claiming gender discrimination, led the Wing to formally adopt a membership policy: “The Wing is a space designed for women with a women’s-focused mission. Members and guests are welcome regardless of their perceived gender or gender identity. Recognizing that gender identity is not always consistent with someone’s sex assigned at birth, we do not ask members or guests to self-identify.”

…”Why do men need to be there? Why can’t they respect the spirit of the place? Men have to have everything.”

…”I think it’s members bringing in men for investor meetings. Here, everyone is in , and men still hold all the money and power. These women are trying to fund their businesses.”
