A student has slammed clothing retailer Boohoo for offering women a discount while men watch the World Cup games claiming it's 'sexist'.
A spokesperson for Boohoo apologised for any offence caused and said the company continues to focus on promoting gender equality within all its ranges.
Rebecca, from Cambridge, said: "As a regular shopper I often get emails from Boohoo.
"I know there are plenty of women who like shopping and men who like football but Boohoo doesn't need to reinforce these stereotypes.
Rebecca said she complained to Boohoo on social media after the first England game on June 18 but received another discount code during the second England game on Sunday so complained again and claims she has yet to receive a response from them.
A spokesperson for Boohoo said: "At Boohoo customer satisfaction is our utmost priority.
