    sense of humour – on how I do my job, basically, Whereas women are quite often judged on what they’re wearing or how their hair is.

Recently, Hillary Clinton was asked “What designers she preferred”. In conclusion the objectification is stopping women from progressing in life, if all that people are worried about is their dress sense and looks, women should be able to wear whatever they want and shouldn’t feel like they have to dress only to impress men, although if that’s what they want to do it’s their choice.
