ABC News reported on a study on women in the workplace that looked at how a person’s attire at work influenced other people’s perceptions of the subject’s intelligence and abilities.
The results showed that a provocatively dressed women in a managerial role evoked hostile emotions and were deemed less intelligent. But when study participants were told that the woman was a receptionist, there were no negative emotions or negative perceptions of the woman’s competence.
The entire study was published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly, a publication of the American Psychological Association.
