Will The Real SamCam, Catherine M and Michelle Obama Please Stand Up?

Last week’s state visit was interesting for women wasn’t it? Things I learned: SamCam has an amazingly clean kitchen. Michelle O wore a floral prom style dress but had the bow taken off before meeting the Queen, and Catherine Middleton likes Reiss and has lost even more weight.

No talk though of David Cameron’s ‘curvy’ figure or Barack’s socks or the state of Prince William’s living room. As for the barbecue at No.10 it was good to see the men cooking the meat and the women serving the coleslaw in aprons wasn’t it?

Now I like all of the above women and while I’m more than a little interested in clothes and Michelle’s toned arms, I’m also interested in a lot more than the above. 

For instance I’d like to know what SamCam and Michelle really think about the health care reforms their husbands are pursuing. I’d like to know what the Duchess of Cambridge thinks about being only discussed in terms of body size, and hair. And I’d like to know what all three women have to say about making it no matter where you come from.

Why? Well because; a) We’re not living in an episode of Mad Men and; b) My daughter needs better role models than Cheryl Cole and the TOWIE girls.

So how about those spin doctors and PRs not taking us for fools and showing us something real about these women’s lives. That’s something genuine and unstaged where the women can be themselves and not look horribly uncomfortable. After all like Catherine, SamCam and Michelle we already know real life is about a lot more than clean kitchens and nice dresses.

    I agree, Anita. There’s more comment about Michelle Obama’s toned arms and acute fashion sense than her stance on public policy or her commitment to preventing childhood obesity (she is a staunch advocate for children’s health and fitness). Also, I wonder how many people know that she, like her husband, President Barack Obama, is a graduate of Harvard Law School? Focusing on what really matters – not just the fluffy stuff – is key!

    I couldn’t agree more and when I was on the Telegraph Online yesterday I noticed that "SamCam shows off her trim physique" was second most viewed news story! Which makes me wonder if women are responsible for newspapers churning out this stuff as they’re only responding to demand. A few days ago I saw Bianca Jagger on Breakfast news. Now all I know about her is that she’s a style icon from the 70’s. What I didn’t realize until the other day is what an intelligent woman she is and that she does a lot of really good work for Amnesty International….and I can’t even remember what she was wearing!!

    I find it interesting that there’s suddenly so much focus on women as wives. I grew up in the 80s and can’t remember women being presented this way in my lifetime. I grew up with images of career women or independent women like Madonna as role models so I’m struggling to get my head round this idea that a woman’s ultimate ambition is to find a husband and her ultimate role is to spend the rest of her life supporting him and looking pretty.

    I couldn’t agree more. We should be able to celebrate more than being fluffy and pretty and married. All things in equal measure I say.

  5. Jane says:

    Absolutely spot on Anita! If I hear one more thing about that Reiss dress, or how tanned Kate’s legs are I think I’ll throw up. (And as for those BBQ pics of Barack and Dave – don’t get me started). Enough already of the fluff. Where’s the substance? Where are our proper female role models?
