Call on Zinburger to remove vulgar wallpaper from women's rooms

This petition had 14 supporters

When women patrons of Zinburger visit the woman's room they are confronted by a wall to wall mural of men aiming cameras at them. This is vulgar and sexist. The men's rooms contain murals of farm scenes so it is clear that the Zinburger brand isn't exposing men to vulgar images to make them uncomfortable while they are dropping their drawers but for some reason they feel compelled to give women this uncomfortable experience.

When I first visited a Zinburger in Cherry Hill New Jersey I complained to a manager. He said the wallpaper was mandated by corporate so I wrote them a letter explaining my disgust with this practice. I received a contrite email back saying they were redecorating all the rest rooms nation wide because there had been other complaints. This was more than 2 years ago.

This week I visited a Zinburger in Morris Plains New Jersey. It had been built in the last year - and the rest rooms were decorated exactly as they had been in the Cherry Hill Zinburger 2 years ago. There has been no change in this indefensible policy.

For the record, the food at Zinburger is excellent and I've received good service in both the locations I have visited. However, I will not give their sexist corporation one cent more, and I hope I can count on you to pledge to do the same. Please join me in urging Zinburger to do the right thing and cease singling out women and making them feel uncomfortable while men are treated to pastoral scenes. It's 2016, time for Zinburger to start acting like it.
