Posted on June 6, 2008 | No CommentsWhile watching Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton give their historic speeches to close the democratic primary season, I was conflicted. Not because the end to their epic battle was bittersweet, or because I would rather see either one of them in the White House than McCain, but because of the crowd’s reaction: a standing ovation.

I particularly enjoyed when author Anna Holmes said, “sexism is so pervasive as to be almost invisible and so accepted that to mention it is to risk being accused of hypersensitivity.” Too often women refuse to speak up against sexism or, even worse, they fail to diagnose it out of fear of being labeled a “feminist.”
