Every once in awhile, we hear a new story that reminds us that, despite feminism's best efforts, sexism in the workplace is still alive and well.
Most recently, this manifested itself in the form of a London receptionist, who refused to wear high heels. Her name is Nicola Thorp, and she was recently placed at a financial firm -- only to be told she had to wear shoes with a "2-4 inch heel."
Naturally, Thorp complained about the policy, particularly because the men in the office weren't held to the same standards. What happened next will shock you -- but what Thorp did as a result is pretty awesome.
The petition got over 10,000 signatures, so now it's up to the government to respond. Only time will tell if this archaic rule gets pushed aside in favor of the law. We sure hope so.
