It’s still hard to imagine what he was even thinking.
A state lawmaker from Brooklyn has canceled an event for women to learn “posture, deportment and the feminine presence.”
Republican State Sen. Marty Golden sent out a mailing advertising the July 24 business etiquette event. His website said women would be taught to “sit, stand and walk like a model.”
But Golden canceled the event Tuesday after critics said he was out of touch with the lives of working women.
Keep in mind, the intended point of Golden’s now-canceled event had to do with employment – he thought women who learned “the feminine presence” and how to “walk like a model” would be in a better position to get jobs. The advertised tips also included lessons on how to “walk up and down a stair elegantly,” as if that would come up in a job interview.
It’s the 21st century. I just thought I’d mention that.
