Women today are doctors, lawyers, corporate CEOs, generals and admirals. The pay gap has all but disappeared for women who work in the same fields as men and have done so for just as long. Young women in urban areas earned about 8% more than their male peers, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report in 2009.
Hillary Clinton, who got to start at the top because she’s Bill’s wife, is a feminist heroine, despite having orchestrated smear campaigns against the women who accused [Bill] of sexual misconduct. So [is] Elizabeth Warren, who obtained appointment to the faculty of Harvard Law School after claiming, falsely, to be of Native American descent. . .
But the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, the first female Hispanic governor, the first African-American woman to be secretary of state aren’t feminist heroines because they’re Republicans. To be a feminist today is to be a dishonest shill for Democrats.
