Is it Sexist to Focus on Michelle Obama’s Style?

Much has been made of the efforts in London by the world’s leaders to come up with a plan to spark the economy.  Much has also been made across the media landscape of what Michelle Obama is wearing. 

Harmless?  Fun?  One of the readers of our blog doesn’t think so:

"Focusing on Michelle Obama’s wardrobe is just plain sexist. Clearly, she’s going along for the ride, but in the end, it weakens all women when prominent women are judged based on their appearance." (Tina)
