The fact that Maggie’s wearing a suit in this picture
means so much to me. I’ve always hated wearing dresses and was never comfortable in them. It’s only recently that I’ve started gathering the courage to wear suits in front of my family and I’m still uncertain and scared about it each time. But to see this, a woman wearing a suit for a formal event, on a show like Supergirl just means the world to me. It’s not just a pantsuit she’s wearing to work or something like that, but a suit she’s wearing because she wants to dress nice for her girlfriend.
There are still so many people out there in today’s society that do a double take and stare when girls or women wear suits, with or without ties, as well as tuxedos. And to see Supergirl dress Maggie in a suit instead of a dress like many other shows would’ve done, makes me really happy. It’s helping to normalize women wearing something other than dresses. And quite frankly, this picture alone is helping me to realize that I have every right to wear a suit and I should be comfortable with my choice.
