To say that this year’s race for president has been historical is an understatement. Not only did we have an African American candidate, but we also had a female candidate. With Hillary Clinton having officially suspending her campaign this weekend, one question that has come up is, how far have women truly come in this world from the days of the suffragists?
CBS quotes Clinton herself in saying,
“… Although we weren’t able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it’s got about 18 million cracks in it.”
Clinton was referring to the approximate number of votes she got in the course of the primary campaign.
[Pat Schroeder, the former Colorado congresswoman and presidential hopeful, who’s now president and CEO of the Association of American Publishers] said Clinton’s campaign showed, “There’s a tremendous amount of sexism still out there,” and society simply doesn’t deal with sexism as it does, say, with racism and anti-Semitism, and the campaign showed we still have “a lot of ground to cover” combating sexism.”
