[NYT] “On Nov. 8, Americans may elect our first female president. While many of us are exhilarated at the idea of this feminist victory, the toll we’ve paid for coming so close to that historic barrier has been the most graphically sexist election in living memory.


What this campaign has shown us is that while feminism has transformed American culture, our politics and the lives of women, men haven’t evolved nearly as rapidly. Women changed. Too many men didn’t. What happens next?


For all of American history, white men have been both the dominant group and the default one: It was mostly white men in charge, and it was white male experiences and norms against which all others found themselves contrasted and defined. When Hillary Clinton started at Yale Law School in 1969, there was only one woman in the United States Senate. It was legal for a man to rape his wife, but abortion was mostly outlawed. Mrs. Clinton graduated as one of just 27 women in a class of 235, after being explicitly told that if accepted into law school, she would take the rightful place of a man.


Decades-long movements for women’s rights have challenged that system, breaking down the legal and social barriers that blocked women from the work force, questioning the cultural rules that so often kept women silent, and giving women more control over their bodies and, by extension, their futures. The same year Mrs. Clinton graduated from Yale, the Supreme Court held that American women had a legal right to abortion; that, coupled with expanded access to contraception, meant that women flooded into colleges and workplaces.”

Critics of Hillary Clinton, “what have you done with your life?”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2014 by sheriffali

The Trolls or as I refer to them as “haters,” use Social Media to demonize Mrs. Clinton with every form of derogatory remarks imaginable and unimaginable. To those critics I defend their right of Free Speech under the Freedom of Speech Act as defined in the First Amendment to the Constitution.


However, to those Trolls [Haters] I ask a simple question; “what have you done with your life?” Mrs. Clinton for years was sanctioned by the Bar Association as “one” of the top “100” Lawyers in the Country. Mrs. Clinton has spent her entire adult life defending the rights of Children and equality for women. She is also a defender of “equality for all.”


We are still two years and three months away from the 2016 Presidential Election and although Mrs. Clinton hasn’t officially said that she will be a Candidate for the Presidency, the consensus is that she will do so when the time is right.


Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger stated that Hillary Clinton is the most qualified person to be President. One must remember that Mr. Kissinger is a Republican and former Member of the Nixon Administration. We are by no means fortune tellers, however, logic plus common sense taking into proper perspective seems to determine that Mrs. Clinton is in the best position to win the Presidency and become America’s First Female President. My personal opinion is that Mrs. Clinton, should she become President, would be an asset to all people, not only in America, but the entire world. I hope that she does run and that she wins!


Quote that represents Hillary R. Clinton;


Virtues of Women!


“There is something in a woman beyond all human delights: a magnetic virtue, a charming quality, and occult and powerful motive of love and caring.


A beautiful woman is the perfect workmanship of God and the sole wonder of the world. When I see the elaborate study and ingenuity displayed by women in the pursuit of achieving their goals, I feel no doubt of their herculean undertakings.”


Man’s sin is that he has not had enough humility; woman’s that she has had too much of it. It is as if, by letting women carry the burden of being humble and pious for them, men have got rid of any need to appropriate these virtues for themselves and so have felt free to visit aggression on the world.”
