Young feminists and Clinton
Re “Feminists, back off Clinton,” Opinion, Jan. 21
Kudos to Meghan Daum for taking to task millennial-cum-potential “fourth wavers” for their dismissal of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as “too mainstream.”
The fact she may seem so is evidence of the success that we of the “second wave” achieved. Instead of dishonoring their foremothers, millennial feminists might take a page from our book when we honored ours, the suffragettes.
These people should educate themselves and take a women’s history course. Last time I looked, equal pay for equal work has not become “mainstream.” Instead of criticizing, get busy organizing.
Why is the left so willing to overlook and mischaracterize Bill Clinton’s exploitive and aggressive behavior toward women? Bill Clinton is not just a womanizer; he is a sexual predator.
Why would any selfrespecting woman or feminist want him back in the White House? Patricia Doyle
