Jawbreaker, Charmed, Grindhouse
There are some people meant to be world changers, and Hillary Clinton is one of them. People think that the vilification of Hillary started when Bill Clinton ran for president and she came under scrutiny as a potential first lady. I submit that she’d been vilified long before then. Hillary dared to dream big as a girl and that doesn’t sit right in our male-dominated culture. When a girl wants more than her circumstances, she’s consistently knocked down. I, for one, am incredibly grateful that Hillary has been a boss lady since she came out of the womb. The values, ethics, and bravery she’s shown in the face of true hatred is nothing less than astonishing. Her power to rise above the misogynists is stuff of legend, as well it should be. There is no one more qualified than she is for the White House because she literally had to be, because of one simple fact: she’s a she. (A crime to many, that she thing.) This is a game-changing time for us women, and it is time to pay Hillary back for everything she’s done. All you have to do is vote. So do it.
