1) The title. It's catchy but I am a grown woman, not a girl. In terms of professionalism, shouldn't we begin by referring to ourselves as women?
2) Pages 275-276, "Wearing Inappropriate Makeup" - while I understand that too much makeup (and perfume) can be disruptive but wearing no makeup at all is a bad thing??? There are so many women and girls out there who try to live up to this unrealistic social standard of beauty that they are literally hurting and/or killing themselves (eating disorders, plastic surgery, injections, etc.). Telling women that success ties into how much makeup one wears is very dangerous. Success should never be defined by how much makeup one wears or doesn't wear.
3) Pages 277-278, "The Wrong Hairstyle" - again, this buys into an unrealistic social standard of beauty and could be considered discrimination. Some women cannot cut or dye their hair for religious purposes. Some women, like me, have naturally kinky or frizzy hair. Others can't afford the $200+ to see a "good hairdresser" every 6-8 weeks. My hair is so much healthier since I stopped dying it. Am I going to dye it again to meet stereotypical standards? NO. Am I going to use chemicals or heating appliances on my hair regardless of the damage they may cause? NOT HAPPENING. Does that me a bad employee? ABSOLUTELY NOT! No one (male or female) should feel any pressure to do things their bodies or hair that results in damage.
To promote equality in the workplace, maybe we need to start challenging and changing the way we judge each other - it should be by performance, not appearance/difference. Maybe someone needs to write a book titled "How To Recognize and Promote Talent Fairly Regardless of Sex, Race, Religion, Etc."
