“Women hate women. That’s what I think it is. Women’s nature is not to support other women. It’s really sad. Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children. Women turn inward and men are more external. A lot of it has do with jealousy and some sort of tribal inability to accept that one of their kind could lead a nation.” -"Madonna"
On election night, when things looked down for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Cokie Roberts had a theory for why. It was all about the sexism. The sexism of the blue-collar men. The sexism of the white-collar men. The Archie Bunker types of the fruited plains. -Jim Stinson

Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a new culprit for its loss to Donald Trump: Self-loathing, sexist women. During an appearance on MSNBC on Monday, former Clinton campaign communications director Jess McIntosh claimed it was women with “internalized misogyny” who couldn’t bring themselves to vote to elect the first woman president.
"Certainly, misogyny played a role. I mean, that just has to be admitted. And why and what the underlying reasons were is what I’m trying to parse out myself."
"Fellow white women, I'm done with you. After all this talk of allyship, you didn't show up to the polls to push back against the openly racist, xenophobic, misogynistic now-President-elect Donald Trump..."
McIntosh said “we’ll figure out exactly what happened with turnout,” particularly among “white college-educated women.” “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,” she lamented. -Kate Scanlon
