Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Sunday the only way for women to deal with the “double standard” in the way female candidates are treated by pundits is to “keep forging through it.”
“We are still living with a double standard,” Clinton told CNN’s Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I know it. Every woman I know knows it, whether you’re in the media as a woman, or you’re in the professions or business or politics, and I don’t know anything other to do than just keep forging through it, and just keep taking the slings and arrows that comes with being a woman in the arena.”
Clinton said she finds the discussion about her volume on the campaign trail interesting, adding, “Sometimes I talk soft, sometimes I get passionate and I get a little bit excited. I don’t know any man who doesn’t do the same thing.”
“I’m so used to this,” Clinton told Tapper, telling voters to judge her by her record.
