Femininity and Workplace Expectations

Femininity and Workplace Expectations

“Artist Documents Her Experience Dressing More Feminine To Get A Job”

This is a really “real” view on femininity and transformations of women.  This word (“transformation”) is something I’ve been noticing a lot in our readings and I’ve found it to be an expectation of women to transform themselves into different roles, or bodies, in order to be successful in whatever community they are living in.  I love how Coco Layne, this artist featured in the BuzzFeed “expose” if you will, shows this transformation. I’d like to know how her job reacted when she transformed back into her “normal” self, or if she even did.
