When my smart, adorable four year-old daughter looks up at me and I tell her she can be anything she wants to be, I sometimes feel like I’m lying. When I see how Hillary’s been treated, I sometimes think maybe my little girl can’t grow up to be president.
When you, or I, or the media, or our legislators discount Hillary simply because of her gender, even unwittingly, it diminishes the rights for which so many women have fought for so long. Men who disrespectfully denigrate Hillary also hurt their wives, lovers, sisters, mothers, friends, and daughters. We aren’t being the change we seek.
