The high heels issue continues to hit the news. Politicians and celebrities are coming out to support a new law making it illegal to force women to wear high heels. The temporary worker sent home for her flat shoes has now collected in excess of 120,000 signatures for her petition to ban employers insisting women wear high heels.
No woman should be forced to wear high heels. Responsible employers shouldn’t need the law to tell them that https://t.co/aCYTuLvmy8

One wonders how many dress code policies (formal and/or informal) are being ‘updated’ this week.
Twitter has been awash with high heels tweets, some serious some not so.

Yesss! I clench and raise my fist,
I got the job! Receptionist!
Hear my sister’s anguished squeals
They should have worn their 4″ heels.
