I Don't Show Up At Work To Look Cute

cristinaby - C. Rose I walked into the office one morning with a new dress. I didn’t even get to my desk when three men smiled at me and complimented me on my outfit, but not on my success at winning a new account. If my male counterparts wear nice outfits to work, it means financial success and a day of booked meetings.

As a woman, why am I treated differently? I don’t show up at work to look cute and win approval. I come to make quotas and get work done. As I made my way to my desk that morning, I turned on the computer and declared myself a feminist… because I’m not going to tolerate it anymore.
