Our thank to Mike P for this. An extract:
The survey found that it takes the average female worker just under 15 minutes every day to select an outfit – that’s 65 hours over a working year of 260 days – compared to just nine minutes for men. [J4MB: Six minutes extra per day. The clothes selection gender gap is an outrage, and women should be paid more to compensate them for it.]
More than half of the women polled said they often felt ‘stressed’ about what to wear to work, compared to just over 10 per cent of men.
The survey also found that one-third of women got anxious over what to wear to an office party [J4MB: Hmm, ‘office party’? Do women not work in construction, in sewers, on North Sea oil platforms, road digging? Why, those damned patriarchs, keeping women out of the best lines of work!] competed (sic) to just 16 per cent of men.
Let’s summarise the whole ‘women in the workplace’ thing, shall we?
Women are strong.
Women are powerful.
Women are stressed out about what clothes to wear in work, and at office parties.
We need more women in boardrooms.
