What is a bigger hurdle in this election - race or sex?
Check out this New York Times Op- Ed piece by Gloria Steinem entitled “Women Are Never Front-Runners” which gives her opinion on the matter.
Once you read the article check out this debate from democracynow.org with the author of the piece, Gloria Steinem, defending her position while, a professor at Princeton, Melissa Harris-Lacewell opposes her assertions about race and sex, and why way in which it plays into the election from the piece. It is a very interesting read and discussion. Enjoy.
