War of Words Break Out as Female Lawyers Criticized Over Dress Sense
A Californian legal publication produced by the Local Bar Association, consisted of an article in which only one out of 20 female lawyers was found to be dressed stylishly. The article has caused an uproar as it is now being attacked for being ‘blatantly sexist’.
A couple of stylists wrote a critique of the dressing sense of the 20 female lawyers, who they observed for Marin Lawyer, a title published by the Marin County Bar Association. The stylists concluded that the lawyers in Marin did not have a good eye for fashion.
Mee Mee Wong, the executive director of the Bar Association, claims that the article fabricated the largest response out of the all pieces published in the June issue. Professor Yvette Martinez will be publishing a reply to the critique as a letter to the editor. She says, “We are strong, educated, dedicated, and vocal. Did you really think that we would thank you for the unsolicited fashion advice and skip off to the mall?”
