February 22, 2020 - Warren Gives Advice to Young Women Facing Sexism

The first question asked at a Seattle campaign event for Warren is what her advice would be to young women fighting sexism in high school and college communities. Warren responds, “To persist,” recalling a theme of her campaign. At the same event, Warren addresses a recurring question about facing sexism as a candidate for president. Similar to her response at the recent CNN town hall, she explains the difficulty of answering this question, exposing her to criticism of being a “whiner” if she says sexism persists or living on another planet if she downplays its existence on the campaign trail.
