What Every Woman Should Know About Hillary Clinton (And Probably Already Does)

It’s the kind of thing that people joke about–how women in politics always have an extra set of challenges that men don’t face.

We battled […]

Three Female Cartoonists Open Up About Drawing Hillary Clinton

Today, anyone with a Twitter account can experience the gendered terms used to denigrate Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy ― like those related to her emotions, family life, physical appearance, and more.

If Anyone Is Unifying The GOP, It’s Clinton, Not Trump

Benghazi Backfire! Presidential Hillary Clinton Showcased by GOP

As a Clinton supporter, I had not been anticipating how helpful the Benghazi hearings would be. Of course, not in the way intended.

Bernie Blew It: He Sold Out Instead of Confronting Clinton

Bernie blew it. By embracing rather than confronting Hillary Clinton, Sen.

Money Talks: Why CNN Wants You to Believe That Hillary Clinton Won the Democratic Debate

Why would CNN be so quick to declare Hillary Clinton the winner of Tuesday’s Democratic debate, when the majority of online polls crowned Bernie Sanders?

Trey Gowdy Focusing On Hillary Clinton Allies In Closed Benghazi Committee Interviews

WASHINGTON — Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) insists his Benghazi Committee investigation isn’t about hurting 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the polls. It’s about providing a definitive account of the 2012 attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya.

Iranian Americans Ask Hillary Clinton to Clarify Offensive Democratic Debate Comment. Is She Implying She’s My Enemy?

My last name is Iranian. I was born and raised Catholic in the USA to parents of northern European heritage. After I divorced my Iranian (now ex) husband, I kept my last name. Because I was married to an Iranian, I became an automatic citizen of Iran, formerly known as Persia, and for a time, […]
