From Jonah Goldberg:
While a gaggle of female Democratic politicians and aging feminist writers and actresses have tried to gin up female solidarity, it’s largely backfired.
Gloria Steinem, a fading icon of a bygone era, said that Bernie Sanders is attracting young female supporters because they’re boy-crazy, and “the boys are with Bernie.” She later apologized.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was trotted out to issue her favorite quip: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
Albright’s defenders note that she’s been saying this for years. And that’s true. She traditionally aimed this banishment to eternal damnation at women who undermined other women in contests for the one token woman’s position.
And that’s quite telling. While there’s surely still sexism out there, the days when women had to make do with token positions as representatives of their gender are largely behind us. Clinton herself was the third female secretary of state. No one thought she got the job because she’s a woman.
In other words, Albright, like Clinton, is a product of another age, and she sounds like it. More.
Reality check: Today, young women take the opportunity for achievement for granted. Unfortunately, fashionable victimhoods are so often marketed instead.
Sanders can probably promise bigger victimhood.
