Is it possible to be both a contemporary woman, and a plausible (i.e., non-risible) head of government?
Here, from the Daily Mail, is British prime minister David Cameron meeting with the new Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt before the start of the recent summit in Brussels on saving the euro:
Thorning-Schmidt herself seems uncomfortably aware of the problem, as we can see from this second photo:
What I found most interesting about the Daily Mail story was this picture. The Social Democrats constituency, it seems, consists largely of women and short, ineffectual-looking males. How many Africans and Chinese live in Denmark; should a picture of a crowd of Danes really have one of each?
Well, this appears to be a youth group, which would explain the preponderance of short, ineffectual-looking males.
