Point to Sarah Hanson-Young in the fight against “smutty” men’s magazines everywhere.

The Australian Greens Senator won a defamation case on Thursday against Zoo magazine for photoshopping her head onto the body of a half-naked underwear model.

The photo, which appeared in July 2012, added Hanson-Young’s face onto the lingerie model as part of an article titled “Zoo’s Asylum Seeker Bikini Plan.” The magazine promised to house a boatload of refugees in Zoo‘s office if the senator would agree to a revealing photoshoot.
