Clinton's Lessons to the Working Woman
Perhaps one of the most infamous moments of Clinton’s campaign was when a man told her to “iron my shirt” at one of her stops. That moment was a defining moment for Clinton, as many working women were able to relate to her. Covert sexism in the office has been around a long time and it’s not indicative to women in middle- to low-level jobs—it hits even the most powerful of women.
Another barrier that Clinton tried to overcome was the constant use of her first name, as opposed to her last. In the workplace, males have always gone by their last names, but refer to women by their first names. Some feel this is a way of taking the working woman less seriously than her male counterpart.
Then there’s the stone-cold fact that women make less then men, and the assumption that a woman should dress like a man, in order to get ahead in her career. This was brought to light when a raucous ensued over Clinton showing a little cleavage—apparently, she wasn’t serious about her candidacy because she was inappropriately dressed.
