Pelosi’s fashion statement is beside the point

Nancy Pelosi may be the most powerful elected woman in the United States, but The Boston Globe still chose to judge her by her clothes rather than by her words and deeds (“Pelosi wraps up Trump visit with bold fashion statement,” Names, Dec. 13). There was no mention of Donald Trump’s electric-blue tie or Chuck Schumer’s brown suit — because they’re men, and thus judged by their words and actions.

When can we stop valuing women for their appearance or their choice in clothes? When will we instead see the Globe invest more space to Pelosi’s staunch opposition to Trump’s border wall folly?
