I think most people are feminists even they might not always want to admit it... Feminism seems to get aa bad rep. these days. And I’d be surprised if ms. Merkel wasn’t a feminist.

Merkel is a power politician who invited Ivanka Trump for political reasons and she certainly doesnt have the image of a feminist. She is one of the few truly powerful women worldwide not involved in a gender discussion, mainly because she dresses the same way and has the same hairstyle for decades. To hear her call herself a feminist is a rare emotional statement, her approach towards politics is quite scientific and very 'wait and see'. In Washington, she showed The Donald who's boss without him even noticing.

It was a nice gesture to give this event an extra attention boost.

I wonder if she was still in Mexico last night, as they suffered a 8.1 earthquake that was felt in Mexico City.

She probably was, since the RVD released a statement that Queen Maxima was unharmed during the earthquake and that she will be flying home today as scheduled.
