It is a question of appropriateness for the situation.
Men in most offices are required to wear trousers and a shirt. where as women can get away with wearing casual clothes.
Would you be offended if I turned into work with low slung jeans showing off my butt cleavage???
the requirement for men to dress a certain way by business when on business time, is oppressive to men.
I understand you point blah blah blah, oppresive to women, blah why shouldn't they be aloowed to show off what god has given them, blah blah, feeling
of comfort with ones sexuality etc etc.
It's a place of business. end of.
Have respect for other people that may feel intimidated by this, other, maybe older women etc. older men. Younger men, whom feel it inappropriate to
deal with you on a business level, as their baser desire take hold when they try to talk to you about last months accounts or whatever.
What it comes down to, speaking as a company owner and an employer that first impressions count. If I had a woman come to the office, with a, now let
me be straight on this, revealing attire, that one would wear to a nightclub (I have seen this). that would say to me, on first impression, that this
is all she has to offer, and is not showing the due respect to her new employer. And now matter how much she would prove it, or be good at her job.
First impressions stick.
By the way just to be clear, I would apply the same standard to male employees also. Should any arrive inappropriately dressed. Which I have also
seen. They get the same treatment.
Hows that for equal rights. Respectfulness for all.
