Gloria Steinem: Men Regress to Childhood When They See ‘a Powerful Woman’ Like Hillary


Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing the possibility of Hillary Clinton being the first female commander-in-chief, feminist and author Gloria Steinem offered a diagnosis of how she thought men react to a “powerful woman” like Clinton.

Cokie Roberts said, “So though much has changed, much has not. What about the biggest possible change, a woman president? Steinem endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008, but didn’t think the country was ready for a female commander-in-chief.”

Gloria Steinem said, “What made me feel that way was actually seeing big grownup friends of ours on — guys in the media, who are perfectly serious people, saying things like, about Hillary Clinton, I cross my legs whenever I see her, she reminds me of my first wife standing outside alimony court. Looking at a powerful woman made them feel they had been regressed to childhood, because the last time they saw a really powerful woman, they were eight. So they behaved like eight.”

Roberts said, “So do you think 2016, the country is ready for a woman commander-in-chief?”

Steinem said, “Yes, I — I do. I think it’s going to be hell.”
