Yes, women should cover up. This is coming from a woman.
If women want the right to go sleeveless, let's ensure men can do the same, and wear tank tops to the BC Legislature too.
Bare shoulders is not professional on either men or women. Cover the eff up.
I've worked and currently work with women in the office who wear low-cut, freckle-showing cleavage, backless tops, spaghetti strap dresses and skirts ending about 2" from the end of their butt. The office is not a nightclub or a bar or a fashion show or a burlesque show. You're there to work. I don't take any of these women seriously who show off 60% of their body skin at the office. Imagine a man showing up in tiny running shorts with side slits and a tank top showing 60% body skin in a meeting of 12 people. Think people are not equally grossed out?
For the record, I'm not some "jealous type"; I'm a size 4 and extremely fit. But I cover up because showing flesh is nasty and cheap, whether you're male or female at work.
