Should employers be able to make women wear high heels as part of corporate dress codes?

The British government says the law already forbids companies from discriminating against women.
However, a report from Parliament’s Women and Equalities Committee found that “discriminatory dress codes” remain commonplace in sectors including the retail and tourism industries.
