    We need more women to stand up to Clinton.

    Just because you're a woman doesn't mean you have to vote for Hillary.

    But isn't there a 'special place in hell' for women who don't vote for Hillary?

    You shouldn't vote for a presidential candidate just because they are a woman and expect it'll further feminism.

    It's like choosing the only female candidate and then you turn around and it's Myra Hindley.

    Honestly, a minority of female hillary supporters are pulling the sexism card on twitter, on social media, and have invented the absolute tripe of 'bernie bro's' , so they can play the sexism card.

    Sexism is a REAL issue and this just undermines it.

    Good tired of feminists and other identity groups ruining politics without looking at the bigger picture.

    Good to see a leading feminist look beyond the gender of the candidate.

    If women are simply voting for Hilary simply because she is a woman, they are as bad as those not voting for her because she is a woman. Gender shouldn't need to come into it, as far as I'm concerned Hilary Clinton would not make a good president, it wouldn't matter if she were male, female or a purple dinosaur, she wouldn't be getting my vote.

    Bernie Sanders all the way!!

    I agree with you. Voters need to ignore the gender and focus on the views of the person. But sadly, I don't have much hope for this election.
