Women have spent a long time fighting for equality in the workplace, and we've come a long way, but there are still some strange biases lying about. Executive women who conform to societal demands of sexiness (à la Sarah Jessica Parker) are thought of as less competent than frumpsters. Attire did not have a similar effect on perceptions of non-executive women. More evidence that Sex and the City is doing more harm than good!
If you're creative, you might be schizophrenic - but you also get laid more! At least, that's what the BBC seems to be saying. I don't have the time or energy to go in to how ridiculous this little fluff piece is, because I'm too busy being..err...creative.
