Hillary Clinton spoke to a group of college students at the “Women & Human Rights,” at Georgetown University. The conversation turned to climate change. One person brought up the idea that climate change might be sexist against women, and without a seconds delay, Hillary Clinton agreed.
“I would say that particularly for women, you’re absolutely right, they will bear the brunt of looking for the food, looking for the firewood, looking for the place to migrate to when all of the grass is finally gone as the desertification moves south and you have to keep moving your livestock for your crops are no longer growing,” said Hillary Clinton.
“They’re burning up in the intense heat that we’re now seeing reported across North Africa, into the Middle East, and into India,” she claimed.
“So yes. Women once again, will be the primary… primarily burdened with the problems of climate change,” said Hillary. Why won’t men have to deal with these things too? Who knows. She went on to describe why people didn’t vote for her.
“Some of it was old fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women and certainly the equality of women’s leadership. And some of it as an outgrowth of all of this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats,” she said. She really shouldn’t be talking about scapegoats after writing an entire book blaming people for her election loss.
