A woman who works as a family and immigration attorney has said what you wear to work doesn't have to define you.
Kathleen Martinez has a massive presence on social media where she has 477,000 followers on her TikTok, @attorneymartinez.
But things took a different turn at work when her former all-male bosses said she couldn't wear pink.

When told she wouldn't be taken seriously, Kathleen founded her own all-female all-pink law firm and even stole their clients.
Since launching "Martinez Immigration" in 2020, the firm's gone from strength-to-strength with over 25 female staff members.
Her workers are encouraged to wear bright pink, sexy business attire with high heels.
Now speaking with Daily Star, Kathleen opened up about how she doesn't care if she shows a little bit of cleavage.
She said: "I refuse to conform to a conservative dress code. I am an attorney because I have earned the ability to practice law.
"My dress was never a requirement for my license so why should it be now?
"Whether it's a shorter-length skirt or an outfit that shows a little cleavage, it doesn't matter what female attorneys wear.
"We have doctorate degrees and licenses because we are smart. My clothing does not represent my ability to help people."

Kathleen grew tired of men putting her in her box as she's experienced plenty of sexism in her field of work.
She revealed: "A judicial clerk once told me my hair wasn't 'lawyerly', but I think women should style their hair however they choose.
"And, whether it's natural or heavy make-up, women should wear whatever gives them the confidence to be happy."
Now Kathleen hopes to encourage other women to be confident in their jobs.
She continued: "If you don't want to dress how your employer wants you to, leave.
"There are plenty of employers who will accept you for your experience, character and integrity; that should be enough.
"Find where you are valued, or start your own business. More businesses such as banks should relax a little with dress codes."
Asked whether female leaders should dress less conservatively, Kathleen said: "Yes! This would teach communities."
