Ugh, more election sexism

23 Oct

This article from Salon talks about Stephanie Cutter, the deputy Campaign Director for President Obama’s reelection.  It discusses how much more attention has been paid to her, even over other campaign officials who are more senior in position to her.  It also mentions the sexist undertones of these criticisms, and that the searches people conduct on the internet are for information regarding her personal life, rather than her professional one.

    Thanks for posting this! I can’t stand the stereotypes that surround her, but at the same time they are so predictable. Check out this article from Jezebel about some of the crazy stereotypes she faces, along with many other women who are within politics.

    My favorite is “ugly clothes.” Really, that is all they got!

      I personally like “lying liar” and “surly”. It shouldn’t, but it still blows my mind that so much blatant sexism still exists.
