“Why Sexism at the Office Makes Women Love Hillary Clinton”

I really like this smart piece by Jill Filipovic.

Hillary Clinton reminds me of so many no-nonsense colleagues in health and social service settings. They show up first thing, and they get down to work. They eat lunch at their desks or on-the-run while doing their work. They don’t have much time or bandwidth to shoot the breeze at the coffee machine or whatever. They sometimes have to run out to pick up their kids. But they are the workhorses who actually get stuff done.

    1. NCG, you really ought to read. It has nothing to do with Hillary curing sexism. It discusses why younger women tend to favor Bernie, while older women tend to favor Hillary. It's well written, and worth reading.
