CARY, N.C. – A double standard that treats men and women differently still exists in the race for the White House, Hillary Clinton told an audience on Saturday.
“I do think that there is still something of a double standard,” she said in North Carolina. “I think there is a certain element of that.”
“I’m not running for president because I’m a woman,” she added, “but I’m very conscious of the fact that my being a woman sends an incredible message of possibility, not only to our daughters but also to our sons. It says in our country, we have consistently expanded the circle of opportunity. We have broken through so many glass ceilings.”
