In the midst of the whole Spitzer debacle, talk has been circulating about politicians, their sexual philandering, and their wives (as Silda stood silently next to her husband yesterday). As the presidential race ensues, Hillary Clinton’s name keeps coming up. Though good-ole, homestyle misogyny is part of why so many hate Hillary, the fact that she (a self-identified feminist) stood by her man in spite of the fact of Bill’s many sexual adventures is undoubtedly another. Rosa Brooks has a fantastic post on women getting ahead by demonizing weaker women, standing by your man, and vast, right-wing conspiracies here. Fantastic post, fantastic points.
