US librarian loses 'sexy' lawsuit

Ms Goodwin says she plans to remain in her job for the time being
A US librarian who said she was passed over for promotion because of her image and race has lost a lawsuit against her employer Harvard University.

A court ruled Desiree Goodwin, a black 40-year-old with two Masters degrees, had not suffered any discrimination.

Ms Goodwin claimed she was overlooked for 16 promotions and kept in the same job since she was hired in 1994.

She said a superior told her she could not be promoted because she was viewed as a sexily dressed "pretty girl".
