Hillary Clinton: on equal opportunities, equal pay and equal respect:
…we must make sure that women and men alike understand the struggles of their grandmothers and their mothers, and that women enjoy equal opportunities, equal pay, and equal respect.
Let us resolve and work toward achieving very simple propositions: There are no acceptable limits, and there are no acceptable prejudices in the 21st century in our country.
No women running for office in America should ever have to go through this kind of blatant sexism again:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-IrhRSwF9U
So, let me go on record here to say that I would like to hear our presumptive nominee, Barack Obama start talking about the sexism in this election cycle. And I would like to hear him pledge to finally make the Equal Rights Amendment a reality. I’m with Hillary on the Obama hope train, but I am also with those thousands of women across America who were appalled that the sexism she weathered in her campaign.
Hillary said it today: “There Are No Acceptable Prejudices in the 21st Century.”
