Many women view the male ‘uniform’ of the suit as being liberating - when everyone is dressed basically alike, you are judged not on your appearance, but on your own merits as a human being, or as a skilled person. Women often feel that they are judged only by what they wear and how they dress, and so to be able to wear something which would force people to judge based on actual skills and merits, would be far superior to the fashion industry and the media forcing its expectations of beauty upon them.
Whereas some - I would go so far as to say many - men view the uniform as boring - women are given the freedom to wear almost anything they like, to dress in as many colours and to express themselves in any way with their clothes, whereas men are expected to wear the uniform of the man, and to look like all their peers. So many men consider the huge field of options of women’s fashion as liberating - they allow for self expression in a way that the suit never could.
I don’t know how to explain to you guys the epiphany that is spread across my brain right now. I literally had to take off my glasses, put down my book and my notes and just… stop.
