Hillary Clinton cites 'misogyny' as cause for her defeat

Posted April 10, 2017

"I'm really focused on just doing some things that I think I can help make a difference with, like supporting young people and getting more women into politics", Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton's first extensive on-stage interview since losing the presidential election in November was a big hit.

Clinton also criticized Trump's reluctance to admit Syrian refugees to the US.

"It was really the weaponisation of information, something that Putin has used inside Russian Federation, outside Russia to great effect that I didn't fully understand how impactful that was", she said. Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that "she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it's been analyzed by many of us".

"Assad has an air force, and that air force is the cause of most of these civilian deaths as we have seen over the years and as we saw again in the last few days", said Clinton at a "Women in the World" summit in New York City. "And layer on the first woman president over that and I think some people, women included, had real problems".

"The things that come out of some of these men's mouths, like 'Why do we have to cover maternity care?' Oh I don't know, maybe you were dropped by Immaculate Conception?"

The Rajya Sabha today passed the historic Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill without any amendments. Mr Sibal said the bill excludes tobacco, petrol, turbine and real estate from its list.

"The targeting of women - which is what is going on - is absolutely beyond any political agenda", Clinton said.

Clinton said that she is convinced that Putin and Russian Federation were responsible for the email hacking activity that targeted the Democratic party and that they have to be held accountable. "So whatever party you are, whatever business you run, whatever concerns you have, if we don't take action together to hold whoever was involved accountable, they will be back time and time again".

She also plans to write about other interferences, such as Wikileaks, Russia's involvement, and FBI Director James Comey's investigation announcement just a week before Election Day, to give "as clear and as credible and explanation of these factors" and their roles in her campaign.

"I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House seems to be pursuing", she revealed. In the first weeks, she largely disappeared from public view, walking in the woods outside her Chappaqua, New York home.

And when asked about her life, she said: "As a person, I'm okay".
