“Young women have to support Hillary Clinton. The story is not over!” she said. “They’re going to want to push us back. Appointments to the supreme court make all the difference.
“It’s not done and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you. And just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
NYTimes Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright Scold Young Women Backing Bernie Sanders
Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you.
So, Young Women. If you are Bernie Sanders supporters, better mend your evil ways, because High Priestess Clinton and Madeline Albright are threatening you with, not just hell, but a *special* place in hell if you don't vote for her. Hahahah. Clinton campaign desperate, aren't they?
I absolutely believe what I said, that women should help one another, but this was the wrong context and the wrong time to use that line. I did not mean to argue that women should support a particular candidate based solely on gender. But I understand that I came across as condemning those who disagree with my political preferences. If heaven were open only to those who agreed on politics, I imagine it would be largely unoccupied.
Course if you look at the rest of her article you'll see she just took out the hell part but is still pushing Clinton. I like this comment
I have multiple young female relatives, married and single, gay and straight. All are now voters. And all support Sanders.
The reason? Sanders is asking them to act and think for their own futures but also for the futures of their families and children.
And fair or not, Mrs Clinton is seen as something akin to a teacher telling them what to do. Someone who doesn't believe they can make up their own minds, but need their minds made up for them, by older women who claim they know best.
This is not seen as a feminist move. It is like, as one put it, "being nagged by my mother."
