Wall Street Journal Targets Women

7 Jun

I will never forget the early mornings before school when my father would pour a cup of coffee and open the Wall Street Journal. After he would finish reading the newspaper from front to back I would have free reign. As a little girl, I would add my personal “touch” to the illustrated faces of prominent figures like Alan Greenspan. For example, carefully drawing mustaches on any person featured on the front page.

I’m happy to say that I am currently pursuing a career in public relations and an avid reader, surely not a graffiti artist, of the Wall Street Journal. The Lifestyle and Personal Journal sections are my usual go-to because it features stories that appeal to female readers. After reading PR Couture‘s top PR fashion links on May 23, I’m super excited to read the new “Journal Women” section online.

“Journal Women” targets professional women in the work force and includes “Style and Dress” and “Theory and Practice” sections. In a recent article titled “Bare-Legged Ladies: Hosiery Reveals Office Divide,” Christina Binkley discusses whether or not to wear hosiery at the office.

I loved reading this article because I usually never wear hosiery and it looks like I’m not alone! “Journal Women” is a great resource for career women and I encourage my female classmates to check it out!

    Great post, Sarah. I just twittered about it! I enjoyed reading the nylons article too.

    To weigh in on the debate, I do not think nylons should be required in the workplace.

    Last weekend, I saw someone wear nude nylons that hook around the toe, so they looked natural with open-toe shoes. I had no idea she was wearing nylons until she pointed it out.

    Also, I enjoyed visiting the new Journal Women section of the WSJ’s site. I suggest sending a trackback to the article you described.

    Excellent work.

    I don’t wear hoisery, haha even the word sounds old lady to me, like I want to pronounced it in a horribly bad British accent – hoizshery…However, tights are a whole different thing. I love tights. However, I live in San Diego where life tends to be a bit more casual than usual. From pure fashion snobbery, there is nothing more horrifying to me than nylons worn with an open toe or sandal-like heel or shoe. shudder.

    I wear tights to work; only natural colours. Only with the company i work for, their uniform supplied is dress coded black tights. I only wear around the house or going out to parties.

    It’s amazing to pay a visit this web site and reading the views of all colleagues on the topic of this post, while I am also zealous of getting know-how.
