Good for Her

Martha McSally, a member of Congress from Arizona (R-02), chose to wear a sleeveless dress and open-toed shoes while speaking on the House floor. It’s not, to be sure, the most consequential act of these times, but the rules against such attire are unnecessarily restrictive. She’s dressed ordinarily for an American woman in the summer, and, indeed, millions of women in all sorts of professions dress similarly. Congressional prohibitions on this style of dress are simultaneously irritating and ridiculous.
