When asked what she thinks are the biggest challenges of being a woman today, Hilary told Bethenny, “Part of the challenge, especially when you’re a woman is… recognizing that there’s still this gigantic double standard. We are still judged on a different set of criteria than men in public life, or men in business or men in academia. You name it.
There is still a different set of expectations. I’ve been first in a lot of areas so I’ve had to go into the traffic and try to figure out how I was going to maneuver and get through it. There’s still a big burden on women in the public arena that we have to just keep pushing forward with.”
She also pointed out that women need to become more empathetic. Hilary said, “The countries with the best outcomes [during the pandemic] were run by women. In New Zealand, Taiwan, Germany, Finland, Denmark. Many of them were moms, many of them were more open to feeling the fear and anxiety that people had and being more inclusive and listening. [This] led to measurable results.”
Hilary also says that she regrets being “too gangster” with Donald Trump during the 2016 election. She recalled, “I thought about that a lot. [In my book] What Happened I wrote a chapter about women in politics [and] how do you deal with somebody that aggressive? In retrospect, I could have tried a few different things. Still, you’ve got to be careful as a woman. They get to be aggressive but if we’re aggressive we pay a price for it. I think I could have tried a few other tactics.”
