This has also bugged me about women politicians. Why oh why do they match themselves up against guys in suits by wearing a shapeless blouse?
My plea is this - we know that males are already likely to be taken more seriously as authority figures, promoted more, paid more... why let them have the advantage of looking smart and appropriate too?
Actually, I'm not really insisting that women wear suits as such, 'cos I certainly don't (except for job interviews) I'm just pleading that we dress like grown up, professional, appropriately formally presented people.

Wearing reasonably formal clothing to work does not need to cost any more or take any more time. So why not?

So, what do you think? Wear what you want and damn the torpedoes?
