Regarding the article "Image-Consultant Industry Comes of Age," July 21, I took exception to the following sentence: "Hillary Clinton was lagging in the polls because she sometimes appeared to be high-powered and ambitious ...." It was suggested that she get a new hairstyle and wear pastel colors.

When will the public accept the fact that it is OK for women to have successful careers and show intelligence? Linda Bilsbarrow, Crystal Lake, Ill.
