BS'D: This is wonderful and about time. What Israelis often don't realize, is that "business dress" is quite normal in the US and other places where the focus on business is customer satisfaction with a product or service, NOT how sexualized the female workers are. Before I made aliyah, I worked from Fed Ex to public schools and the things we see in banks and schools here, a woman get fired for. We'd have to sign an employee agreement on professional attire and dress-code - basic things. Not quite halacha, but the overall spirit was one of dignity - blouses, not tank tops, skirts not miniskirts, nothing too casual. If we wanted a job, we understood the company's incentive was to focus on job performance, not distract and create an unprofessional, too casual environment. It isn't necessarily religious-bias, just common sense with a halachic twist, cuz here we are. No need to jump on us chareidim about everything even "professional attire."
