3,057 voters participated in this survey
From bare arms in the US House of Representatives to ties in the UK's House of Commons, what politicians wear to work can say a lot about the traditions they hold dear - and the ones they want to leave behind. Quebec politician Catherine Dorion, who is a member of the left-wing Quebec Solidaire party, pushed the fashion envelope when she entered the provincial legislature wearing jeans and a hoodie sweatshirt last week.
After several colleagues complained, Ms Dorion, who represents the district of Taschereau, decided to leave, because she "didn't want to cause a scene", said a spokesperson for her party.
1. In your opinion, is it mandatory for a politician to always wear formal clothing at office?
2. If you work full-time, Do you support the policy of wearing casuals (e.g t-shirt, jeans etc.) at work/office only on Fridays?
3. In the US, Congress bans sleeveless tops, trainers and open-toed shoes, but the rules are not always enforced. In 2017, several congresswomen protested by organizing a "sleeveless Friday". Do you think it is inappropriate for women politicians to wear casuals/sleeveless clothing at their work?
4. Men sometimes run afoul of dress codes too. In Montreal, a city councillor was kicked out of a meeting for not wearing a tie. Do you think that there should be a common dress-code (at least in office) for all the politicians?
