Meet Geisy Arruda, Brazil's latest celebrity after she was expelled from a University for the crime of wearing a miniskirt.
The Bandeirante University in Sao Bernardo do Campo said Geisy Arruda was expelled on the grounds that she disrespected "ethical principles, academic dignity and morality" when she wore a short, pink dress to class.
Before you think that the University acted alone, it should be noted that a sizable number of students at the University heckled and screamed abuse at her when she wore the mini-skirt to school. Video posted to YouTube was picked up by Brazilian media, who have been running with the story ever since.
To add insult to injury though, the University has published ads attacking her and calling her out for "inadequate clothing" and "posing for pictures and provoking other students."
You get the feeling that the Brazil you see in movies (mini-bikini's etc) isn't quite the same as the Brazil in real life, don't you.
