Sexism Still Rampant?

June 13, 2008 | NeW Staff

CBS Anchorwoman Katie Couric had an interesting take on Hillary Clinton’s recent withdrawal from her Presidential campaign…

“One of the great lessons of (Clinton’s) campaign is the continued and accepted role of sexism in American life, particularly in the media,” Couric said in a taped commentary. “It isn’t just Hillary Clinton who needs to learn a lesson from this primary season — it’s all the people who crossed the line, and all the women and men who let them get away with it.”

But do we buy into this? Is America still rampant with sexism? Or was Clinton’s loss simply a result of the failures and shortfalls of her campaign? If America was as sexist as Couric asserts, would she as a woman have been able to land a job as the only primetime female news anchor on network television?
