Hillary Rodham Clinton, quoting Sarah Kendzior:

“I recently read a powerful quote that summed up a lot of this for me. It’s from a book of essays called “The View from Flyover Country” by a journalist named Sarah Kendzior, and she talks about the dangerous ideology behind these attacks on the social safety net. And here’s what she says:

“When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. Think about that for a moment. She goes on to make this point: This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatize those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.”

Hillary Clinton Broke Down How Impossible It Is For Ambitious Women To Be 'Likable'
"By the time they were finished with me I was Typhoid Mary."

When Clinton left the state department in 2013, her approval rating was so high, she was touted as the most popular politician in the country. Flash forward to her presidential run in 2016, and it seemed almost taboo to admit genuinely liking Hillary Clinton. Apparently, we’re fine with powerful women as long they’re not asking for that power.

“Many academics have written about it. It’s a pretty simple but unfortunate phenomenon. With men, success and ambition are correlated with likability, so the more successful a man is, the more likable he becomes! With a woman, guess what? It’s the exact opposite. So the more successful and therefore ambitious a woman is, the less likable she becomes. That’s the inverse correlation that lies at the heart of a lot of the attacks and the misogyny.” - Hillary Clinton
