I wonder if she selected a button-less jacket because it is gender neutral?

Seems unlikely. Other very liberal women candidates and officeholders wear buttoned jackets frequently, and without comment or incident.

It's probably nothing more than what was mentioned in the Post article. Her favored designer (Nina McLemore) has a few different lines of jackets, and one of those lines is tailored and design in a way that favors women who are tall and slender - the Suzanne. That jacket also happens to be designed with a zipper, instead of buttons, across the product line.

That's a tailoring choice you rarely see in men's business wear, but there's more variety in women's business wear for those elements.
