I am very excited that Blue Nation Review has published a piece I wrote on Hillary Clinton and the decades of misogyny to which she has been subjected, and how that informs our reflexive opinions of her today: "I Am a Hillary Clinton Supporter Who Has Not Always Been One."
I have spent an enormous amount of time with Hillary Clinton, although I have never spoken to her. I have read transcripts of her speeches, her policy proposals, her State Department emails. I have watched countless hours of interviews, debates, addresses, testimony before Congress. I have scrolled though thousands of wire photos, spoken to people who have worked with and for her, read her autobiography, listened to her fans and her critics.Head on over to read the rest.
And what I have discovered is a person whom I like very much.
...It has taken me years to find the real Hillary Clinton behind a brick wall of impenetrable misogyny.
And this is the reality with which we all need to reckon: A brick wall is infinitely more difficult to shatter than a glass ceiling.
My thanks to the BNR team for featuring my work and for generally being awesome.
