Taiwan's first female political figure--Tsai boarded The Times Magazine, the masses of the "cover photo" Cai English image, how do you think?

DPP party chairman Tsai boarded the United States "Time magazine" aroused netizens hot discussion, in addition to discussing the United States to support Tsai, cross-strait conditions, the most fiery than "Time magazine" for President Cai's cover photo.

Cai is likely to become the only democratic regime in China-and this is bound to create tensions with Beijing.

This photo is hotly discussed by many people who sigh "Time magazine" to shape the impression of too serious female leaders, this picture of young British pat old, but also the cartoon "Ninja Turtle" figure to taunt. Of course, there is a positive comment on this photo: "Very resolute, aggressive photos","leader is to be strong","Asian South Korea and Myanmar female leaders are not such a domineering kind!" Super Handsome "

In response, Mr Cai replied: "Every magazine has its own photo style, this is the style of Time magazine, and the photographer is an international award-winning photographer (Adam Ferguson) who will judge the main purpose of human observation and visit."

Cai is respectful of the photographer's sensitivity and observation and is receptive to other people's opinions. This photo with an exclusive interview, many people say that they have seen the more diverse appearance of President Cai, since the defeat of the election, Mr Cai has gone out of the elite field, went into the private sector, and reviewed the "in-place operation" after the failure of the election, and has often updated his photo with small farmers to create a friendly image. In addition to her highly educated elite, she has more links with the public to create a female leadership role that is different from the old political image. Her diversity and unpredictability, as she herself said in an interview with TIME magazine: "Some people think I'm a conservative person, but I'm really adventurous." Chua's confidence in the Time magazine interview is appropriate:

As a leader in the 2016 presidential election in Taiwan, Chua's vision of English is a confident and firm emphasis on Taiwan as its core. Cai said she would maintain the status quo on both sides of the strait--meaning that Taipei and Beijing agreed with each other to retain a different understanding of what represents China [Note: This is the opinion of Time magazine journalists] and leave the fate of the island to future decisions. However, Cai English wants to put Taiwan's economy, development and culture first. When Mr Ma and his government push for trade and sightseeing deals with China (China accounts for 40% of Taiwan's exports), CAI hopes to strengthen its links with the world and nurture Taiwanese brands to reduce Taiwan's reliance on China. "Taiwan needs a new model," she told Time magazine. (Time magazine interview content data source: DPP News Centre)

The last mile of gender consciousness

Between innovation and conservatism, she tries to find balance. Whether it is the future of Taiwan or the image of its leaders. Many people say that Tsai's political approach is full of masculine political means, Cai has spoken to "female president": "The presidential election is my political career is also Taiwan's gender consciousness of the last mile, we come together to face this challenge, if out of the female president, will usher in another realm of civilized society." Cai talks about gender awareness, which is one of the elements that marks a progressive culture. Indeed, we need stronger political power to make way for pluralistic gender mobility, and one day we no longer have to deliberately label the identity of "female" presidents, and we can have a gender-conscious ideology and stereotype. Many people look forward to the emergence of the first "female" president in Taiwan, whether it be Chua's English or hung-shin, and I think we are all waiting to see that the new generation of women will bring about a different political transformation from the past.

The political flip of female impressions

even this picture of Chua's image conveys the strength and strength that makes us think that political leadership requires a rather "masculine character" that breaks down feminine femininity. But we vaguely recall that in the 2012 presidential election, when the DPP defeated, she said with a strong, tearful crowd: "You can cry, but not be discouraged." "Such firmness is soft, cai English-style gentleness." from the image of the Time magazine of Cai, we see the new appearance of the political figures, this is also Taiwan's first to board the "times" of female politicians, we can see the fine lines on the face of Cai and forehead, the mouth of a slight smile. The light and shade is more obvious her awe-inspiring, regardless of political ideology, such Cai English shows the domineering and resolute.

But is it the style of women leaders in Time magazine? Let's take a glance at the women's political leaders of the Times:

the first female president to appear in the Philippines and Asia, Cora Yung Aquino

German chancellor, Angela Merkel

South Korean president, Park

What do you think of the women's faces in Time magazine? Female leadership under the lens, confident Cora Aquino, Resolute Angela Merkel, and a gentle and genial Ms. Park, I think it's enough to prove that we can't. Female leadership "should have the appearance, because they have decided in people's mind what kind of personal characteristics and political wrist, and their natural smell and charm, can not be reduced and unified into" masculine characteristics. Can one day, we will not spur a leader what kind of gender characteristics? One day a woman walks on the political road and can play her own rules. the impression of a female leader should be a rich and flowing face, looking at a few photos, such as writing a negative history of the political process, and then look back to the photo of President Cai, Time magazine really took the picture bad? I think the answer is left to everyone's image of the woman. (Extended reading: as a woman, we don't need to prove anything to the world. )
