The political ad put out by Martha McSally showing herself in a flight suit and Kyrsten Sinema in a tutu is sending a horrible message to women and girls everywhere. What is she saying to all those little girls who dress up like princesses? This ad is saying in order to be strong and smart, women need to dress and act like men.

I am a strong and smart woman with two college degrees. There was a time in my life when I wore a pink tutu and I loved every minute of it. It is really sad that this sexist ad is put out there by a woman. A person can be girlie and feminine and also be smart and strong. So I say to all the women (and men) out there, put on your pink tutus and let's change the world.
