The Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, He regretted that in the framework of a press conference with journalism students from the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) a young woman asked him about his clothes and he answered emphatically: “I dress as I want”.

The student has transferred the question to the mayoress: “The first images of Ada Colau in the political journey were, above all, with more vindictive shirts, which gave more the ideas she had. If now the clothes are more formal, it reflects perhaps a moderation of ideas or a political maturation?”

To which Colau replied: “I understand the intention of the question, but I feel bad that a woman asks me about the way I dress and I won’t answer it, honestly.” And she has continued: “Asking about how I dress and categorizing how I dress is out of place. I dress however I want, basically.”

Given the Colau’s reaction has caused the student to crythe mayoress wanted to get closer to the end of the act and apologized: “I feel bad for having answered you so impulsively.”

During the act, Colau had reflected on the different yardstick for being a woman to which she is subjected and that her predecessors, male mayors, her appearance, her personal life or even the hospital where she gave birth, among other intimacies, were not analyzed.

The mayoress of Barcelona later offered a public explanation of what happened. “I impulsively replied that I dress as I want, without insulting anyone but with a tone that was too harsh. I apologized to the young journalist in private when the act was over, and I want to do it in public too, because although every one has its reasons, in no case do I like to hurt or make anyone feel bad,” he wrote on his Instagram account.
