A Feminist's Argument Against Hillary For President
Although I voted libertarian in the last presidential election, I'll almost certainly be voting for the Democrat (whoever it is) this time around – or, more specifically, I'll be voting against the Republican. And if voting for the Dem means voting for Hillary then I'll do so, but that doesn't mean I'll like it. Speaking strictly as a feminist: I hope Hillary Clinton does not win the title of “America's first woman president,” because I would much prefer to see that honor go to someone, left or right wing, who built her political career entirely on her own merits, rather than one whose entire political career is based on being married to a former president. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being a woman who married well; I'm just saying that rewarding a woman for doing so does not count as a feminist victory.
