Memories - - A Great Political Cartoon
Brought up this political cartoon that appeared about that time.
Picture if you will, a woman with of a man who has a GOP pin on his lapel. (She has a DEM pin on hers) He is sitting a desk and she is talking to him.
Her: You don't like Hillary Clinton. Why is it that you conservatives are so fearful of strong, assertive women in positions of power?
He doesn't answer but hanging on the wall behind his desk is a picture of Maggie Thatcher, a strong assertive woman who held power and whom conservatives loved (and feminists hated.)
It's still true today. It's not enough to support a woman. If you support a conservative woman you are a still a sexist. It must be a liberal woman in order to expiate your sexism.
