On Female News Anchors showing their breasts

Why are more and more anchorwomen showing their breasts on TV? In years past, anchor women wore business suits and came across as serious commentators. Tonight on KABC the woman doing the news looked like she was going to hit pool party after she completed her stint before the cameras. She did not look like she could cross the street into the boardroom.

Why am I concerned? There is a trend to sexualize women in business–bank tellers, nursing home administrators–people that used to dress in a fairly conservative style are barely covering their chests. The message this sends to young women is that you should expose yourselves. I don’t like this, and I think it trivializes the role of women in public life.

Cover up, ladies!
