It has been revealed that sexist dress codes at work are just the tip of the iceberg.
Women are still being forced to wear high heels, make-up and revealing clothes by some employers, a parliamentary report has found.
The report published on Wednesday by two parliamentary committees, for Petitions and for Women and Equalities, claims current laws to prevent discrimination are not “fully effective”.
More than 150,000 people signed a petition in support of London receptionist Nicola Thorp, who was sent home from work after refusing to wear high heels.
he Petitions Committee and Women and Equalities Committee said it became clear in the course of its inquiry that this was not an isolated incident.
