University of Adelaide honours student Gemma Killen said a survey of 236 women, found many female workers believe their appearance had contributed in some form to their career success.

A third of the survey respondents also believed their weight played a significant part in how they were viewed at work.

According to News.com.au, Killen said women also felt pressure to appear neither too feminine or too masculine, but somewhere in between.

Flinders University Psychology Professor Tracey Wade quoted the attention given to Prime Minister Julia Gillard's new glasses last week as an example of the unnecessary focus on appearance.

According to the report, she pointed out that 'society is more geared towards noticing these things in women, and having dissatisfaction with your body can be crippling'.
