College students looking for a job or internship can meet prospective employers Wednesday afternoon at the University of Central Oklahoma’s spring career fair.
But along with checking out students’ resumes and ability to hold intelligent conversation, some officials could be checking out the females students’ gams. That’s because female students who wear skirts to the event are mandated to wear panty hose.
They aren’t mandated to wear skirts, so perhaps many will opt for trousers. But is the hose requirement even necessary in today’s society? If a young woman is wearing a skirt or dress of appropriate length and dress shoes, who’s even going to notice her legs? And who’s going to monitor this requirement anyway? Will there be a “hose check” at the entrance?
The men have some rules of their own. They must wear a tie, and no shorts or hats are acceptable for either sex. Bookbags also are a no-no, which seems odd considering this is a college campus.
What do you think? I’m not advocating flip-flops and T-shirts here, but the hose rule seems so 1950s.
