Hillary Clinton Because She’s No Shrinking Violet!

She's No Shrinking Violet!

She's No Shrinking Violet!

Hillary Rodham Clinton is an arduous female politician who has spellbinding qualities that attract countless women. She is a role model & a feminist’s dream because she has come closer to the presidency than any woman in history. Even Sarah Palin had to marvel at the 18 million votes that were cast for Hillary Clinton! This was a woman who seemed equal to men & inspired females to seek equality in their own lives. But, there was a time when Hillary Clinton was pitied & despised by many women because of the choices she made. Many were puzzled as to why she stayed with Bill Clinton after the Monica Lewinsky scandal!

I mean, she’s no shrinking violet. But if you want to be a future president, you might not want to do anything to hurt your chances. Hillary Clinton may have also had her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, in mind.  Most likely, her decision to stay with him was a shrewd political move. A lot of females thought that she was just a weak woman back then. They just could not understand what motivated her to stand by her man.

Since then, Hillary Clinton has emerged as a pillar of strength. Her nickname is “Iron Lady” which is really quite fitting. So, when Sarah Palin said that Hillary Clinton should stop her “persistent whine” about sexism & unfair media coverage, I thought she’d be tougher than Hillary. As it turns out, Sarah Palin hasn’t subjected herself to any real scrutiny. And judging from the interviews she has given, it might be best to keep her cloistered until Nov.4!

Sarah Palin blames the “media filter” for her appalling performances. It’s sexism when anything negative gets attention. She is making the same complaints that she accused Hillary Clinton of making. How hypocritical because I’ve heard plenty of whining about the unfairness shown towards Sarah Palin. She had a quick change of heart once she saw herself getting dissected by the media. I think Sarah Palin should have stayed true to the words she spoke in this video instead of bleating.

Arranged Marriage Is Not The Cultural Norm

http://www.alternet.org/sex/92561/the_rise_of_arranged_marriage_in_america/
Preceding this entry is a link to an article that really gets in-depth on this subject. There are some arranged marriages here in America. But it is not common. Personally, I do not think there is anything wrong with it. When someone is forced into a marriage it is wrong. Many courtships past & present were arranged for financial reasons.

For instance, I know a lady who got hitched to help a Spainard gain U.S. citizenship. That type of arranged marriage is common in the U.S. She knew what she was getting into & she increased her assets in the process. Another chick I was acquainted with actually wound up paying the guy she married. He was from Saudi Arabia & he worked at a liquor store. For some reason, she thought he really loved her when he proposed. But she knew that his citizenship was not permanent. In his mind, he made an arrangement to marry a girl until he was legal. To her, it was real love. Imagine her dismay & suprise when he dumped her. You see, his family had arranged for him to marry someone from Saudi Arabia. Although he could have bucked tradition he did not. It just so happened that his intended was hot!

American Women Don’t Have To Live With Polygamous Men

In some parts of Africa, having a co-wife is a part of tradition. It is a cultural thing that many women have had to adapt to. Polygamy is common in other parts of the world as well. The freedom to leave such a situation is not an option for many women. They must live with it because there are no laws to prohibit it.
Fortunately, we live in America where polygamy is a crime. The women depicted in this film are unaware that they have a choice. And that my friends is reason number two. The freedom to be in a monogamous or polygamous society. The women make their choice at the end of the movie. Enjoy!
