Hillary Clinton says media exhibits double standards against powerful women

Hillary Clinton reportedly asked women not to take criticism personally while she criticized media for exhibiting double standards when it came to talking about powerful women in public life.

Speaking at the opening of “Women in the World” in New York City, Clinton said that the double standard is alive and in many respects the media is the principal propagator of its persistence.

She added that her advice to women who want to, as Friedman put it, “rise up in the world” is that they have the task of making other people, “predominantly” men who they will deal with, relate to them and listen to their ideas, the Politico reported.

Urging women to bring in inside peace, the former secretary of state said that too many young women are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant, adding that they too often take criticism personally instead of seriously.

Clinton persuaded women to be resilient enough to keep moving forward despite personal setbacks.
