Virgin Atlantic has announced a new policy for female flight attendants where they no longer have to wear make-up while on duty. Female crew will also be provided with pants as part of their standard uniform, in addition to the airline's famous red skirts. Until now, female crew had to specifically ask to wear pants

Newstalk ZB's Heather du Plessis-Allan says ditching the makeup bag is meant to be the new burning of the bra, but thinks women actually look better with makeup and should wear it in the workplace. She talks to workers' rights activist Chloe King for her view.
