Tie breaker


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?

Tirath S Saggu (M), tirath.
