From the Paper:

"On a Saturday I went with a neighbor to a local discount store because she wanted some company while shopping. The person is 48 years old and female, lives alone and makes a substantial income. She was shopping primarily for things she needed, but did not hesitate to take her time and look at other items as well.
"Because it was a Saturday the store was quite busy. The woman initially made several stops to look at items and then would walk away from them, stating that the number of people surrounding her made her uncomfortable. Finally, at a section of the store near the clothing she stopped to look at a sweater. Her first remarks were that she liked the material and the color of the sweater, stopping to touch the fabric. Her age obviously played a role in her evaluation of the product because she commented that while she liked the item it was too young for her.
"A few feet away she looked at another clothing item and held it up to her body in front of a mirror. Laughing, she commented that it would make people think she was less than a lady because of the low cut of the item, reflecting both a gender and societal issue associated with the product."
