2020 women candidates have to avoid looking 'angry' says angry woman

In an interview this week, Hillary Clinton claimed female candidates running for the 2020 Democratic nomination are facing the challenge of having to not looking “aggressive” or “angry” — and instead must take a “Goldilocks path” of looking just right.

“How does a woman stand up for herself on the biggest stage in the world without, No. 1, looking aggressive — maybe a little bit angry — that somebody is behaving like that, being willing to go toe-to-toe, when there are so few memories embedded in our collective DNA where women do that?” Clinton said in an interview on the podcast “TBD with Tina Brown.”

Clinton and her supporters have constantly claimed that she faced a double standard when running in 2016. Women, she said, often face scrutiny and criticism for perceived qualities or traits that would not be applied to men.

“How do you get on this kind of Goldilocks path where you’re not too strong and you’re not too weak, you’re not too aggressive and you’re not too passive?” Clinton said to Brown in the interview. “This is still a problem for women on the public stage.”
