A group of women are sick of the “sausage party” that exists in Australia’s film and television world.

So Wednesday, they protested against the country’s most prestigious industry awards, the AACTAs, dressed in sausage costumes.

Footage on Twitter by journalist Steph Harmon shows security forcibly removing the costumed women, who can be heard chanting “end the sausage party!” in reference to a perceived lack of gender representation on film and TV.
