18 Million Cracks in the Glass Ceiling

Although I am disappointed at the outcome of this primary election, I am so happy that we have had a tiny lesson in feminism. My candidate has made it easier for the next woman candidate, and wow, why did I think it would be easy, when nothing has been easy for us ever?

The beating that my candidate took in this election was a sucker punch that she took for all women, and I have to say that while I was surprised at the level of misogyny that still exists in my own country, I am grateful to Hillary Clinton for being brave enough to be the first, the first to be called a bitch, stupid, vile, untrustworthy, a ball-buster, a pimp to her own daughter. I cannot image a fight more difficult, or a woman tough enough to do what Hillary Clinton has done.

Because she has gone there, the path is paved for the next woman.

Thank you Hillary Clinton.

Defend the bad against the worse."
