Many of you had great thoughts and personal stories to share on yesterday's post about high heels and health. If you didn't get to take a look, please do, and let me know what you think. Yesterday's post really got Chris and I thinking about some of the unfair expectations placed on women. Take for example, the wardrobe of TV anchors: men can wear suits and be comfortable, but women are expected to wear tight, sleeveless cocktail dresses. And as we were having this conversation we saw a group of students, in their early teens, who must have been visiting downtown on a class trip. All the boys were in comfortable T-shirts, and long shorts. The girls, almost all, in tank tops and very short shorts. There is just such a ridiculous, and unfair pressure on women, even girls, to show skin, to be uncomfortable, to have their bodies on display. This is a conversation Chris and I have often, I'm really lucky to be married to such a progressive guy.
I'm not trying to be prudish or complain, but I am asking that we look, critically look at, what we expect men to wear and what we expect women to wear. And why is there such a difference between the two in terms of showing skin and being comfortable?
Thank you for stopping by guys.
