Daily Mail writer Samantha Brick has stirred a hornet's nest of reactions on present day social movers such as Twitter and Facebook by writing on how her pretty face and appealing smile got her innumerable male admirers.
In her article in the Daily Mail (admire the courage of the editor to allow such an experiment, anyway, kudos you winner!), she explained several instances of male attention ranging from buying her drinks to train ticket.
Even a restaurant refused to accept her credit card for the food and drinks she consumed! How lucky she is!
No, I don't believe it's a lie, because the article appeared a day before the "National Tell A Lie Day".
But the point Brick was making is more serious than drinks and train tickets.
According to a study published in The Economist, attractive women (of course pretty face and appealing smile included) have an advantage over their plain-Jane counterparts in getting selected in an interview and most importantly getting called for an interview.
Two Israeli researchers, Bradley Ruffle at Ben-Gurion University and Ze'ev Shtudiner at Ariel University Centre, conducted a study on the responses job-seekers get when they include their photo with their curricula vitae.
The researchers sent fictional applications to over 2,500 real-life vacancies in Asia and Europe where including photo with the job application is a norm. They sent two nearly similar resumes for each job, one with photo and other without.
The result was similar to what Brick has portrayed in her article. The genes of old fashioned jealousy at work in most of the workplaces!
"An attractive woman would need to send out 11 CVs on average before getting an interview; an equally qualified plain one just seven," revealed the experiment.
The researchers found that the discrimination originated from the Human Resource Department where over 93 per cent of the staff is females. It is the non-pretty faces which are discriminating pretty faces.
So the bottom line is: Samantha Brick, You are right! It is scientifically proven that women hate you for being beautiful.
