Hey GitLab, the 1970s called and want their sexism back: Saleswomen told to wear short skirts, heels and 'step it up'

Re: Women are more sexist than men

I think the point is that both of the following are sexist:

"Wear a short skirt to show your legs"

"Wear a long skirt to cover your legs"

It is the act of telling a woman what to show and what not to show which is the issue. "Dress smartly" is what they should have said. That would be open to interpretation, but at least it would not be telling women how much of their bodies they should be showing.
