Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has gained global fame for his likeable persona، open attitude toward welcoming refugees، and support of LGBT and women's rights.
He has also been named one of the "sexiest" men in politics، and he even made Vogue's "Sexiest Man Alive" list.
But little was known about his wife، Sophie Grégoire Trudeau، until she came under media fire last week when she posted a photo on Instagram for International Women's Day calling for ladies to post a photo of their "male ally" to "celebrate the boys and men in our lives who encourage us to be who we truly are، who treat girls and women with respect." Independent reported.
Sophie has also campaigned for various gender-equality charities، and she is the national ambassador for Plan Canada's "Because I Am a Girl" initiative.
But what else is known about the woman standing beside one of the world's best-known politicians?
Little is known about her in the global media، but she came under fire last week with an Instagram post about International Women's Day that asked women to "celebrate the boys and men in our lives who encourage us to be who we truly are، who treat girls and women with respect."
Sophie Treadeau came under fire، According to the BBC، commenters described Trudeau's post as "tone deaf" and even "shameful."
With a famous husband who has repeatedly called himself a feminist، it's hard to imagine her post was anything but well intended. But with little known about her، it was easy to criticise.
