Senator cancels event to teach women how to act like ladies

New York State Senator Marty Golden (R) has canceled a planned event to teach women how to present a more feminine appearance in the workplace.

The event called Posture Deportment and Feminine Presence was part of a Summer series on career development focusing on “business etiquette” and “social protocol skills.”

But critics chose to zoom in on Golden’s plan to teach women how to act like ladies.

The media sparked a furor among feminists by calling attention to Senator Golden’s plan to teach women “the art of feminine presence,” including tips on how to “sit, stand and walk like a model” and “walk up and down a stair” and shake hands more elegantly.

Golden defended the workshop as simply a way to help women gain an advantage in a tough jobs market, according to an article by Thinkprogress.com.

Golden cancelled the event after State Sen. Liz Krueger (D-Manhattan), and others criticized the event in the NY media.

“Rather than passing legislation such as the Fair Pay Act to assist women in the workplace, the Senate Republicans appear to be offering career advice on posture and how to act feminine,” said Krueger in a statement to the press.

      As much as I’d love to see women act and look more feminine in the work place, it’s not really important unless the job specifically requires it(Hooters waitresses, models, etc.)

      As long as people can perform their jobs effectively and they’re respectful to everyone in the workplace, it shouldn’t matter whether the employee acts or appears feminine, masculine, or something in between.

      I agree with the Fair Pay Act. Women do need to be paid equally for doing the same work as men, but I think this class would be beneficial for some. I cant tell you, how many times I’ve seen females walk into work looking like they just got off the pole, or will get on it after they clock out.

      I had someone ask me “why do you dress up when you go to work?” and my reply was “I dress for the job I want, NOT for the job I have”, Plus you never know who is watching. “We” are judged by our personal appearance, so it shouldnt matter what the work enviornment is, but thats just my personal feelings on this issue.
