TUC on inappropriate footwear at work

The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (SCP) has today (Tuesday) tabled a motion to Congress highlighting the problem of sexist dress codes which force women to wear high heels at work.

Commenting on the motion, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“We need common sense when it comes to dress codes, not outdated sexist policies. It is ridiculous that so many employers still insist their female staff wear high heels and make-up in 2016.

“Regularly wearing high heels increases wear and tear on knee joints and can lead to back problems. They should be a choice, not a condition of the job.”
