In defense...


A few days ago a big debate started up in the media about what the Spanish Minister of Defense, Carme Chacón, wore to the ceremony marking the beginning of the military year. The Minister of Defense, a woman, chose to wear a suit, conservative yet modern, rather then the traditional dress, skirt, or pant suit that women in politics are expected to wear. The critics claimed she was being disrespectful and calling too much attention to herself, and the rest of the news began the discussion that what a woman politician wears or how she combs her hair should not overshadow her position and her ideas. What do you think?
