Study: Women Given Strip Searches Far More Than Men at Airport

| by Michael Allen

A new study, released by the British chief inspector for borders and immigration, says that women are singled out for strip searches at London's Gatwick Airport.

According to the study, more than half of the women, who were stopped and inspected by airport border agents, ended up in some kind of strip search, while only twenty percent of the men held by agents were strip searched.

Some of the reasons why the women were strip searched included carrying more than $300 in cash and buying a ticket the day prior to travel, reports The Telegraph.

Afro-Caribbean women were targeted more often women of other races.
