Women in the News!

Good Morning, Ethics!

Here’s the Daily Mail story that compares the legs of British Prime Minister Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon, first minister of Scotland. The article written by Sarah Vine in “one of Britain’s most popular newspapers,” reports:

“Knees tightly together,” Mrs. May opted for “a studied pose that reminds us that for all her confidence, she is ever the vicar’s daughter,” the article said.

Ms. Sturgeon’s legs, described as “undeniably more shapely shanks,” were “more flirty, tantalizingly crossed.” The writer then called the Scottish leader’s posture “a direct attempt at seduction: Her stiletto is not quite dangling off her foot, but it could be.”

As a frequent traveler to the UK, I often think that Britain is considerably behind the U.S. in terms of treatment of women. Then I see photos like these of our own government’s deliberations on women’s health care, as featured in Mother Jones.

We all have a long way to go!

See you Thursday to talk about diversity solutions and conflicts of interest!

best,
