Hillary: Misogyny ‘Played a Role’ in Trump’s Victory

Tuesday in New York City at a Women for Women event, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said sexism and misogyny played a role in her losing the 2016 presidential election to President Donald Trump.

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked, “I wonder if you can address, you’ve spoken eloquently about the sexism, misogyny, and inequity around the world but do you believe it exists here still, and do you think — do you think — were you a victim of misogyny and why do you think you lost the majority of the white female vote? The security moms, the people who want to be protected from the kinds of challenges you’re talking about right now.”

Clinton said, “Yes I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well. Every day that goes by we learn more about some of the unprecedented interference, including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club and so I think it is — it is real, it is very much a part of the landscape politically and socially and economically.”
