This year Hillary Clinton has become the first female to be nominated for president by a major political party. Because of this, Clinton has become a symbol for feminism. Many famous women in our country such as Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga, and Meryl Streep are proud Clinton supporters. Some have even taken to social media to show their support and post the #imwithher slogan. But are they only with Clinton because she is a “her” or do they actually support her views? Should Clinton even be considered a feminist?
When people first look at Hillary Clinton, it is only human nature to notice that she is a woman. I think this only affects Clinton in both negative and positive ways. Some people will look at her and think “a woman is not fit to be president, I’m not voting for her.” Others may look at her and think “a woman needs to be president; I’m voting for her.” I have a problem with both of these points of view.
