Show up for the prejudice-Check

The man himself looks funny: largely cartilaginous lumps, flabby arms in the Nude, to the right and to the left of the head. We are, apparently, a species whose benefits are more likely through the brain than through the body. Absurdly, there is still the beauty ideal according to which we sort. And sort out – especially women.

Who wants to have as a woman, professional success, does not correspond to the Ideal – but not too much. Unattractive people, especially women, have it in job interviews is severe, are often not invited in the first place. In the case of salary compare cut is usually worse. So far, So expectable. But the opposite is also true. A new study by Washington State University showed that beautiful business women as less trustworthy, and honest – and rather than the ones you fire. "Femme-fatale effect," mentioned the researchers with the phenomenon.

men also have it is not always easy. They are, for example, is very small, the damage in the profession. But overall, her appearance is less important. Pot-bellied, crooked-legged, egg-headed managers – there are. After an overweight Manager, you have to search long. Who wants to make it as a woman's career, should not be too thick and not too thin, not too flat and not too Busty, not too long hair, but also please do not short-haired, not too much Make-up and not to little, clothes are not sexy, but it's also not graumäusig. Women have chances of getting the top jobs, if they are optically in a very narrow midfield. Of qualifications and competence.

"The company needs to learn: women are not allowed to look the way you look now."

on The Internet cubits long instructions can be found to drape how women have to be neither in the Terrible bolt to fall into the Femme-fatale-the case. You can attend Styling seminars, or entire books to read.

Or you can leave it. It may not always be the task of the women to find solutions for problems that do not cause, but which they are the victims. Instead, each Individual must examine his prejudices – and that goes for men and women, for often it is the women who reject your to pretty or unsightly colleague, or Boss.

The own species more distance

consider, It is difficult to recognize one's own prejudices as such, finally, most people claim it was them, no matter how the Boss looks like, as long as she is competent and friendly. In reality, the prejudices come out, often in micro-aggressions, the man hardly noticed. To recognize prejudice and to eradicate, you can learn in special seminars. You would have to be mandatory for recruiters and bosses.

The company needs to learn: women are not allowed to look the way you look. You may wear hair, finger nails, clothes or Make-up the way you like it. In the context, of course. Mary Barra has shortened after their assumption of office as Head of the US car manufacturer GM flight the previous ten pages long, the dress code on a mini-sentence: "put on something Sensible."

In the fight against beauty standards, it helps to consider your own species more from the distance. In comparison with the Leopard, Wolf or violet head elf, the man is anyway absurd.
