The gender imbalance in the workplace has a long history.
It has been around since at least the 1800s.
Yet it has only grown more pronounced over the past decades.
The rise of gender inequality in the workforce has been an issue for decades.
In the 1970s, women comprised only a third of US federal workers.
Today, it is more than two-thirds.
The gender imbalance is the result of both men and women choosing careers that are less likely to align with their biological sex.
According to a study from the American Sociological Association, women make up nearly a third (32 percent) of all people under age 35, yet only a fifth (16 percent) are employed full time.
That disparity is largely a result of the lack of access to education and training.
According to an analysis from the Pew Research Center, the number of women in the U.S. labor force has dropped by more than one-third since 1960.
As of 2013, the percentage of women who were working full time or part time had dropped from 50 percent to 34 percent.
Why are women such averse to wearing a dress?
In fact, according to a 2012 survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of women believe that wearing a skirt is “not socially appropriate” and 57 percent of them would not wear a dress in public.
There are numerous ways that women are encouraged to avoid wearing a uniform, according the study.
One such trend is the idea that skirts are “too revealing.”
“When it comes to the shape of the skirt, we have to look at it from the perspective of women,” says Lauren Beukes, who runs the website Dress Matters.
“The skirt is a reflection of what the body looks like in public, and if it’s not visible to the public, then we think it’s a problem.”
“When we’re out on the street or in a restaurant, we don’t think about how we’re going to look, what we’re wearing,” Beukes explains.
“When we go to the bathroom, we’re just thinking about the outfit we’re about to put on.
When it comes time to leave the house, we think about what our outfit will look like in the next room.”
The flip side of the same equation is that wearing skirts can actually help improve one’s image and career prospects.
“Women are less attuned to what their body looks the next day,” Beuke says.
“If we wear skirts, we can start to improve the appearance of our body in public and get noticed.”
While a majority of the world is aware of the societal gender imbalance, it’s the U
