One reason why I want to avoid corporate workplaces is sexist dress codes- Women have to wear makeup, but men are allowed to get away with having skin like saddle leather. Screw that, it's a sexist expectation. (I have nothing against women who like to wear makeup, but it should be a choice, dammit)
Other places require skirts for women, again, I refuse. A skirt long enough to cover my legs and still be considered a "professional" style would most likely be bad for mobility- tight and constraining. I'm guessing voluminous, loose skirts would be frowned on in such conservative, old fashioned environments. And as for shorter skirts, why the hell should I be obliged to show my legs to anyone if I don't want to? That, and shorter skirts require pantyhose, I HATE pantyhose!
