This shows a weather woman live on air being told to put on a cardigan because they were 'getting emails', presumably about her dress, which is not even that revealing. This is a good example of how our society is still striving to control woman and their actions. This is not something that would ever happen to a male reporter, even if they had a shirt that was too tight and showed off their muscles they would never be told on live T.V. to cover themselves, I do not know what kinds of emails were sent to the network but it is embarrassing that they complied.

I can't believe they interrupted this woman's job to make her put on a cardigan. How awkward that must have been not only for her, but for the thousands of viewers that had to watch this woman be forced to "cover up". The male reporter's comments were childish and inappropriate and speak to how many (but not all) men feel like it's their place at all to comment on what a woman should and should not wear. They made her out to be an object which was indecent, not a human who shouldn't be sexualized primarily for her body and gender.
