"Do you have to be ugly to be taken seriously as a woman?"
Mariah is married and has a net worth of $225 million.
Looks + money and still not taken seriously.
Janet is in the same boat with a net worth of $150 million.
Is it the "more money" or the "less attractive' that gives her credibility?
Even the Michelle Obama cadre of accomplished women (Susan Rice, Valerie Jarret and Desiree Rogers) can't match the power players of Gwen Ifill and Condi Rice.
IMO - everyone is objectified - but WE get to choose in which way.
