Daily Mail 'Legs-it' front page criticised as 'sexist, offensive and moronic'

Click HERE
With competent women in positions of power, the problem is that the media/people are sometimes more interested in discussing/criticiszing their looks instead of their policies/ability. Political discourse/discussion thus becomes trivialized....This can be unfair to the female politicans as their competence gets sidelined or overlooked as people are more interested in their appearance.
Of course, the men get this too, with famously goodlooking politicians like JK Kennedy and the current Canadian PM Justin Trudeau. But women tend to be judged more harshly -- as the fairer sex, they are expected to be beautiful i.e. seen as sex objects.

but unrealistic goal.  (Cam. 2016)
2. The world would be a better place if more political leaders were women.
