Sorry, Kim, But You've Officially Joined the Fossils
Kim Campbell made a bit of a fool of herself by claiming that women news anchors should not wear sleeveless attire. They lacked gravitas she said.
Sorry, Kim, the world has moved on and left you behind.
I'm old enough to remember when men all wore hats. It was the thing that was done. Until John Kennedy became president. He didn't wear hats and, soon enough, neither did the majority of men. JFK pretty much put paid to men's hats.
Then along came another White House resident, this one.
She wasn't a newswoman. She was the First Lady of the United States and no one, for a minute, imagined she lacked gravitas. And, just to show that wasn't some fluke, here's the official portrait of Mrs. Obama.
Nothing frivolous or lacking in gravitas about this portrait either. It exudes elegance. So, Kimmie, get with the times. Fedoras are out, sleeveless attire for women, should they choose to wear it, is just fine.
