Today people are talking about how Melania Trump, the wife of Donald Trump, empowers other women and “celebrates the achievement of other women”. That is not what she does by hiding out in Trump Tower. Her main achievement in life was marrying a billionaire. I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone would say she empowers women. Melania is a First Lady who isn’t even living with her husband in the White House, because she apparently can’t stand her husband. The excuse they give publicly: their son wanted to finish the year out at his posh, presumably all-white, luxury private school. If he moves to a D.C. school he might have to move to a horrifyingly integrated private school.
However, Melania is married to a sexual predator, a man who has sexually abused many women, including reporters. A man who sneaked into Miss Universe dressing rooms to get a look at teenage beauty contestants, abusing his power as the promoter of the pageant. He’s a sexist, anti-woman “pussy grabber” by his own admission. Today Donald Trump himself was pretended to empower women, which is just a disgrace for the entire country. (He’s even been accused of rape, FYI).
A real feminist, Hillary Clinton, is emerging as a strong feminist voice who understands how to impact lives and speak to real women. From CNN:
She called Republicans’ attempted replacement for the Affordable Care Act “a disastrous bill,” adding that the Trump administration has been “met with a wave of resistance” that indicates the protests against Trump’s policies are just getting started.
“People who had never been active in politics told their stories at town hall meetings.” Clinton said. “They were people who had something to say and were determined to be heard.”
During the question and answer portion of her appearance, she grew incredulous at the GOP health care debate.
“Really? Take away maternity care?” Clinton said. “Who do these people talk to?”
Clinton also focused on issues like inclusivity and diversity of women in the workplace and the need for the private sector to make better efforts to bring more women to the table.
“Advancing the rights and opportunities of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the 21st century,” she said, while noting that women’s representation in Washington is “the lowest it’s been in a generation.”
Who do you think will end the US’s rape culture? My money is on a high-respected and hugely-accomplished feminist like Hillary Clinton, not a lazy rich lady whose husband abused women like Melania Trump.
