Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a feminist tone on Thursday. She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that “deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving “access” to women for “reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth.”
“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice—not just on paper,” Clinton said.
She explained, “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed. As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone — and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.”
Do you remember the good old days of moon shots and great societies, back when Americans somehow accorded government employees a regal regard?
I am generally of the opinion that government employees, including presidents and presidential contenders, are to be seen and not heard. When they have completed serving the master of the house, they are to return to their hole in the cellar, just like in Downton Abbey, and eat their gruel at their rough-hewn wooden table and keep their illiterate thoughts to themselves.
I have zero interest in hearing the hired help like Hillary Clinton put on airs and open her mouth about how “deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
She’s a washer woman. It’s embarrassing to watch her aspire to transcend her station.
