When creating this project, I examined the politics present in a professional workplace. Having spent an unfortunate amount of time in a closed-minded, judgmental, professional environment, it had become overtly obvious to me the differences in how men are treated, promoted, and praised as opposed to women. Another obvious difference is the criticism between the sexes; men are able to carry on their daily lives with nothing being said, or the occasional compliment, while women, on the other hand, are constantly criticized about everything from the way they speak to the way they dress. A woman's ability to lead, or complete her job competently, are unfairly judged by her demeanor, tone, dress, various other irrelevant details. This project is an example of just a few of the comments I received during my time in the aforementioned professional environment, specifically relating to the dress code policy as expressed through different shoes. Something as insignificant as an article of clothing can warrant quite loaded comments and offensive terms, none of which are corrected or reprimanded.
