Helen Bartlett (Letters, NCE 4 March) has raised an interesting point about the wearing of Institution ties, which, I must admit, had not crossed my mind earlier.
I carried out a mini opinion poll among women in various professions: architects, school teachers and secretaries.
Most thought that women do not have to flaunt their professional status by any appendages.
'It's only men thing; wearing ties or rings to bolster their egos, ' observed one.
Ties or rings? Come on women engineers, voice your opinion. May I suggest Helen Bartlett to take the lead?
