Hillary: ‘Misogyny, Pure and Simple’ Was Directed at Greta Thunberg


CLINTON: “I was so appalled to read about a sticker that had been made depicting Greta Thunberg, the young woman who has been trying to sound the alarm about climate change, being literally subjected to sexual assault, a sticker that was being passed out at a company that is involved in the oil industry in some way. Now, look, I — I understand that we’re still fighting over climate change, although that seems somewhat absurd to me, but to fight by objectifying and having a picture that demonstrated a level of violence towards this young 16-year-old girl who has every right in the world to stand up and say, you know, world, you’re not doing what needs to be done, that’s misogynistic. That’s not — I don’t agree with her — I don’t know why she has a big platform. I want a big platform, you know, to repudiate that. Instead it’s like let’s show her being assaulted. That’s misogyny, pure and simple. So it goes from that kind of overt example of misogyny to these unconscious biasses. So we carry it with us, it’s sort of deep inthe nawhatwe expect women to be, and we’re okay with kind of opening the doors and allowing our daughters, our grand daughters, you know, to get great educations, compete for great jobs, but there’s still something inside that when a woman says, wait a minute, I would like to lead, I’d like to be in charge, I’d like to be your president or chief executive or whatever it might be, little alarm bills, little unconscious alarm bells start to ring.”
