If a woman becomes president, will there be four years of gender bashing in cartoons, late night shows, news programs, and blogs? Society seems uncomfortable and unprepared for women in public leadership, with exception perhaps for activists Lady Di, Oprah, and Mother Teresa. Will media comments be disrespectful, crass, and sexist instead of policy-based criticism? Already comments have been made regarding Hilary’s appearance. I respect her and have not yet determined my vote. I thank Hilary for boldness to run. Unfortunately, it seems women in this country are still valued most for…well, ask cosmetic surgeons.
