I remembered my own first suit: how I had to spend half my paycheck to buy it, how great I felt in it, and how, ultimately, I was judged by a man in trivial, misogynistic ways.
You Shouldn’t Have to Wear a Suit to Make Them Take You Seriously

Candice Aiston, this is terribly shameful of our justice system and entirely backwards to the standards to which law should be upheld.

I was hoping you’d expand on ways to make people take you seriously — though your personal account is valuable in and of itself.

It’s impressive that you worked your way through law school as a single mother and I think you deserve an immense amount of respect just for that.

Have you had more luck with these types of encounters since this incident?
