Not THE Feminist Candidate

Camille Paglia has a provocative opinion piece articulating why feminists should NOT vote for Hillary Clinton. The entire column is worth the read, but here is a snippet from near the end:

Hillary's recent remarks about politics as a "boys' club" resistant to uppity women was sheer demagoguery. By progressing farther than any woman presidential candidate, she has become a role model for future aspirants. But by attaching herself so blatantly to anti-male rhetoric - particularly in view of her debt to her husband - she is espousing a retrograde brand of feminism no longer applicable to the US.
