Has Hillary Clinton done anything for women in the past 16 years?

Other than being the first female presidential candidate that has a shot at becoming president has she ever done anything for women using her power as a politician that benefited women? She says she fights for women's rights and equal pay in the workplace but can that really be true? She also has done weapons deals with Middle Eastern country's that are strong abusers of women's rights.

  • After things she has said about some female rape victims and her doing those weapons deals, I don't think I trust her just as a person, never mind whether I trust her abilities. I don't think she's done very much.

  • Of course he is done something for us. She has exploited us. She has used the fact that she's a woman to gain votes. She would use her grandmother to gain votes also

  • I don't think Hilary would be a good president. A lot of people are so caught up on the fact she's a women that they want her to win, but just because she's a lady doesn't mean she's a good canadict, she's always contradicting her words, and she seems like she's just saying whatever she thinks people want to hear.

  • The only time we need a Woman for a president is when she is the best person for the job. Hilary is not that person, too many people seem to think we need any woman, no matter how corrupt, to be president.

  • Yes, she has.

    No, but more than Donald Trump will ever do, since he's such a misogynistic pig.
