Looking at the Michigan primary map in which Biden won every county across the state, one has to wonder to what degree sexism figured in Hillary’s loss four years ago. The same question could be asked about Elizabeth Warren’s unsuccessful campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.. It’s interesting to note that across a wide swath of the electorate, the significance of electing a woman to the presidency for the first time seemed to barely register; it wasn’t a consideration that merited any serious discussion. And that includes the left where this democratic demand, this striving for equality and representation paled in importance to the urgency of “class re-alignment,” offered by the Sanders campaign. I would say that more discussion of this phenomenon is warranted.
