While Senator Kyrsten Sinema can handle backlash from her own party and even confrontation from constituents, she believes her wardrobe choices should be off-limits to the press.
The Arizona Democrat told Politico in an exclusive interview, “I wear what I want because I like it. It’s not a news story, and it’s no one’s business.” “Having coverage be either positive or negative is counterproductive, and it also suggests that women are dressed for someone other than themselves.”
Kyrsten Sinema Uses Clothing To Signal Her Social Class
Sinema’s brightly coloured wigs, denim vests and sweatshirts, and brightly patterned clothes have caught the attention of the national media since she was sworn into the United States Senate in 2019. In February, she presided over the Senate while wearing a pink blouse that read “dangerous creature” in red letters.
Mears said that Sinema’s presentation sounds like “someone who’s got a catalogue budget but is making an attempt to visualise what that high-finish editorial appears to be like, somebody who aspires to be amazing and edgy.” One element of sophistication in Sinema’s sartorial functionality is that it is necessary but aspirational, not in electric power but in coolness. Mears writes extensively about the world of high society and the ways in which women and gentlemen negotiate authority.
Kyrsten Sinema Background as a Designer
Given her background as a designer, Mears has an intimate understanding of the ways in which social status is communicated through the clothes we wear and the bodies that wear them. Women’s beauty is advertised as a requirement for admittance to exclusive nightclubs and social events frequented by attractive men.
According to Mears, “the normative system would be a white person,” and in a society in which white men constitute the default complete body, all other variables of power, including as colour, gender, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation, must negotiate with them for access to prestigious positions. To gain entry to such establishments, one must, at the very least, be a beautiful woman.
It would be unfair to judge a politician’s policies on their gender alone. We have done terrible job of interrogating women in the past, and we are still doing it today. However, that doesn’t imply it can’t be done better and for better results. I told Menendez that the public needs to learn how to talk about powerful women if the goal of some forms of feminism is to create more such women.
Each week for the past two weeks, I’ve filled in for Ezra Klein on his show. In almost every case, shows with a guest host have been excellent. Only because I have had such excellent guests on my shows do I consider them to be among those. .
