File This Under "Duh"

Here's a piece about a recent study reporting that sexy attire "works against" businesswoman -- or at least affects others' evaluation of their competence.

Is there really anyone who needed a study to realize this? It's profoundly sad that girls and women today are, in effect, being told that nothing matters as much as "sexiness" -- not talent, not intelligence, not character. It's not true, and those who fall for that line suffer for it, in the workplace and elsewhere.
