This is a link to an article by Kate Buck about how women in the UK who are working remotely are being asked to dress "sexier",


presumably to attract more business. She notes that:


Around two out of five women said demands were targeted at them or other women in their teams, rather than equally with male employees, leaving them feeling "objectified, demoralised and self-conscious" about their appearance.


Most women told to dress more provocatively did not report their boss to their HR department, and one in four actually agreed to change the way they looked for fear of a negative impact on their career.


In your view, does this constitute sexual harassment in the workplace?
