Arguably the biggest storyline from the 2016 Presidential Election cycle was Hillary Clinton being the nominee for the Democratic party. It was the first time a woman had accepted a Presidential nomination, thus making her the closest woman in American history to becoming President. Unfortunately, due to the toxicity within the race, brought about by the voters and the media, the only care anyone seemed to have about her credentials, was the fact that she was a woman. As a result, the only question that seemed to be on most people’s mind was would Hillary Clinton become the first woman to, “break the glass ceiling?” This sexist stench followed the campaign, creating a cloud of fog overhead. It even went as far as the Clinton campaign reserving the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, which was constructed with a large glass ceiling, as their campaign watch party headquarters.
Fortunately, Hillary Clinton suffered an unexpected defeat, leaving the door wide open for a real, qualified woman to become President. But, that begs the question, who will that be?
