Can A Female CEO Be Smart & Sexy?

Marissa Mayer

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The latest issue of Vogue magazine has a lot of people asking the question, “Can a female CEO be smart AND sexy?”

Vogue’s September issue features an article about Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer — and the picture accompanying the article is causing some controversy.

The photo shows Mayer lying backwards in a lounge chair with her blond hair fanned out behind her.  She’s wearing a form-fitting Michael Kors dress and stiletto heels.

Some women say the photo is inappropriate for a woman in her position, while others point to a double standard when it comes to the way male and female CEOs are showcased.

CBS 11 wants to know what you think.  Leave your comments below or on the CBSDFW Facebook page and look for them during CBS 11 News at 4.
