‘The ceiling isn’t just glass’: Women in politics reflect on Hillary’s loss

Libby Davies, a former NDP MP and Vancouver city councillor, described the attacks on Clinton throughout the campaign as appalling and horrifying. "I don't think in my political life I've ever seen such sustained, unrelenting vicious attacks on her as a woman and what that represents," she said. She pointed out it didn't matter what Trump said, people voted for him anyway. "If a woman had done any one of the things he had done, she would have been out," she said. "It would not have been tolerated, yet he seemed to get away with everything and it didn't seem to matter to people — that's what I find really hard to get through my brain."
