Like Clinton, our daughters are no victims. And yet, all is not quite well. Not when achieving C.E.O., M.D. or Ph.D. status can still come appended with a second alphabet of b- and c-words. Not when a woman who runs for office is accused of harboring a “testicle lockbox.” Clinton, whatever else she may be, has become a reflection, a freeze frame of the complications and contradictions of female success. Her bid for the White House has embodied both the possibilities we never imagined for our daughters — shattering not just the glass ceiling but the glass stratosphere — and the vitriol that attaining them can provoke. Both are real; so Godspeed, girls.
The Hillary Lesson, NYT Mag
(There was another decent one I can't find right now, but I'll update if I remember where I read it. Anyone remember? It was about how troubling it is that Clinton's campaign revealed a deep-seated cultural hatred of women. I thought it was in NYT or Slate, but really can't remember.)
