THE PLANK JANUARY 16, 2008

Global Sisterhood Ain't What It Used To Be

After last night's TNR panel discussion on the POTUS race (for which I'm sure every one of you tuned in to C-SPAN), a young woman from the Netherlands stopped me to ask if Hillary could receive a significant boost from playing the race card. Back in her country, the woman explained, feminism was no longer hip, and young women in particular think talk of sexism is a bit passe.

I told her the situation doesn't seem all that different here.
