Revamped ‘Gender Equality’ Hotel in D.C. Fails to Appoint Woman as Head Chef

A revamped hotel in downtown D.C. which prides itself on having reopened to the embrace of “gender equality” has failed to appoint a woman to the post of head chef.

Instead, the Hotel Zena, which features a massive artistic rendering of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg while marketing itself as a monument to equal rights for women, lists the restaurant’s executive chef as a man, Eater DC reported.

Nevertheless, the hotel, which reopened Thursday on Thomas Circle in Northwest with a limited menu and staff due to the coronavirus pandemic, touted itself in a news release as “a groundbreaking hotel dedicated to female empowerment.”

The hotel is a “safe gathering space that celebrates diversity, respects different points of view, and opens the floor to topics worthy of meaningful conversation,” a quote attached to the release states. “We know we’re pushing boundaries and might even make some people uncomfortable — and we’re okay with that.”
