    Women voted against Hillary, too. They cringed as much as the rest of America when she spoke.

    Her white feminism helped her a lot. If she hadn't alienated herself from so many voters by calling Republicans deplorables and black men super predators she might have won.

    She demonstrated to the world women can be every bit as crooked as men.

    Women's empowerment? What's so damn empowering about having to be a woman and a man? All the responsibilities of both, none of the privileges.

    Hillary's historic presidential run helped empower women and girls, but in many respects, it did not affect equality for women as much as it did for those who had traditionally been marginalized in society. It's true that the election of Barack Obama meant the "gender gap" in the United States became larger than it had been since the Civil Rights Era. But I would argue that women's empowerment did not increase because of Clinton, but because of Republicans and Democrats who pushed for increased equality with their party and the broader country. But to the extent that women became even more dependent on the Democratic Party, women became more empowers, not less.

    Unfortunately, America is not actually a free country
