Many women I’ve spoken to felt cheated after Hilary Clinton was defeated. After another man pipped her to the post, I find it difficult to show the same elation I would have felt if Mrs. Clinton was in office. I think Obama is a breath of fresh air and brings a lot of youth and excitement to this country and I hope that he can change the world but he’s still just a man. A man in a man’s world. How different the world might be if a woman was at the helm of it’s most powerful country.
Vivian Gornick makes this point in the LA Times today:
Women are still judged by their appearance and not their intellect and Clinton suffered a lot under the media.
I look forward to a woman in the White House. We are the majority after all.
