Double Standards For Female Politicians


index“Although it is better than it was, having been in and around politics for many years now, there is still a double standard. And it is a double standard that exists from the trivial, like what you wear, to the incredibly serious, like women can’t vote, women can’t run for office, women are not supposed to be in the public sphere,” she said.

“But there is a spectrum of the double standard and of the both legal and cultural barriers to respect for women, for the full participation of women,” she said.


I feel that there is a clear double standard for women in politics. Rather than talk about it I’d like to share a hilarious clip from the daily show which addresses this topic in a devastatingly funny but serious fashion. Click any of the links below and tell me what you think.
