Do women have a right to ‘bare’ arms … while they deliver the news?
That’s the debate former prime minister Kim Campbell raised when she tweeted the following:
“I am struck by how many women on television news wear sleeveless dresses — often when sitting with suited men. I have always felt it was demeaning to the women and (Morgan’s blog post) suggests that I am right. Bare arms undermine credibility and gravitas!”
Sun Editor-In-Chief Adrienne Batra and reporter/columnist Liz Braun are left scratching their heads as to why a former female politician would criticize what women wear on air — especially considering that the female empowerment movement continues to solidify itself in the zeitgeist and society.
And don’t forget how former first lady Michelle Obama embraced her famous sleeveless style, which inspired many professional women.
Batra and Braun aren’t the only ones confused: several anchors and reporters were outraged by Campbell’s odd tweet — which she eventually took down.
Watch above for a fiery conversation! (No sleeves were harmed in this conversation.)
