Short skirt could truncate career
Dear Angel: Do you have any thoughts about the proper skirt length for an office these days? A lovely young woman, recently out of college, has begun working in our office, and she wears her skirts very short. I don't know how she can sit down. That said, she's very bright, personable and has a great figure and looks good in the skirts, once you get past the fact there's nothing to them. But I fear the shortness may be affecting her in negative ways. I've overheard guys, including her bosses, joking about it, and frankly I don't want her held back because of the way she dresses. But I feel that I would be interfering to say anything to her (or look like a jealous busybody — help! I'm only 42!) Any ideas about how to handle this?
