Abstract

Do women's choice in apparel, hair, makeup, and overall appearance have an impact in the way they are perceived in the world of business? In careers that are predominantly male, are women not taken seriously based on how they look? We challenge the idea that a woman can't be attractive, confident, and smart. With research taken from academic journals and prominent magazines, we explore whether or not there is a gender barrier in the workplace. The findings are geared towards young women entering the business world so they can be better prepared for the scene of a male-dominated field.
