Fmr Clinton Campaign Spox: ‘Internalized Misogyny Is a Real Thing’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Jess McIntosh, who was Director of Communications Outreach for Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign responded to Clinton’s showing among white women by stating, “”Internalized misogyny is a real thing,” and “We as a society react poorly to women seeking positions of power. We are uncomfortable about that, and then we seek to justify that uncomfortable feeling because it can’t possibly be because we don’t want to see a woman in that position of power.”

When asked about Clinton’s performance about women, and the fact that she did about the same among white women as President Obama did in 2012, McIntosh responded, “Internalized misogyny is a real thing, and this is a thing that we have to be talking about as we go through and see –.”

She added, “We as a society react poorly to women seeking positions of power. We are uncomfortable about that, and then we seek to justify that uncomfortable feeling because it can’t possibly be because we don’t want to see a woman in that position of power. We need to, as we go through these numbers, as we figure out exactly what happened with turnout, it seems to be white college-educated women. My guess is that breaks down married/unmarried. My guess is it breaks down older/younger. But we have work to do talking to those women about what happened this year, and why, why why we would vote against our self-interests.”
