Friday in New Hampshire while campaigning for Hillary Clinton actress Lena Dunham said Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton has endured “horrific gender attacks,” which she argued shows the existence of a hatred for successful women in the United States.
Dunham said, “I can not talk about Hillary Clinton without also acknowledging the horrific gender attacks on every aspect of her character that she has endured of the media. She handled it with unimaginable calm. But the way that she has been treated is just more evidence of the fact that our country has so much hatred toward successful women, and an inability to separate their accomplishments from that of powerful men.”
She added, “Nothing gets me angrier than when someone implies that I’m voting for Hillary Clinton because, frankly, because she’s a woman. Thank you. It’s not like we have some feminist version of beer goggles that is called estrogen blindness, which causes us to go walking towards the nearest vagina and vote for them. This assumption is condescending at best and is sharply misogynistic at worst.”
