Does Ogburn want her to be hideous with a bull cut? In the particular video and work Ogburn criticized, Fields is neither “showing off her legs or cleavage.” Women in the political world can look feminine and be successful at the same time. Fields does a great job of representing this.
My question for Ogburn is this: Do women like Fields have to “ugly” up to be taken seriously? Would someone with less than fabulous hair and a gorgeous face have seen as much criticism based on a poor performance?
I don’t think so. In defense of women who look like women, keep it up. If there is more pressure on feminine-looking women to do a better job than women who choose a more manly look, so be it, but to attack Fields for being attractive rather than solely focusing on her quality of work is pathetic.
