Clinton’s “Consciousness-raising”

by NeW Staff on June 16, 2008 · 0 comments

Listening to Hillary Clinton’s concession speech last weekend, tons of feminists throughout the week and then Katie Couric blame Clinton’s loss on sexism has made me feel like an unwilling participant in a 21st century “consciousness-raising” session.  In the late 1960s, radical feminists throughout the United States engaged in “consciousness-raising” sessions, seeking to make women aware of how oppressed they were as married mothers primarily dedicated to raising their children.   Clinton is one of the most powerful women in America, yet she blames her loss on sexism.  As a woman about to enter the workforce, I wonder–How bad is it out there in the working world?

I explore this topic in my latest Townhall column, Clinton and Couric Embrace “Consciousness-raising.” Enjoy!
