Misogyny Cost Hillary the Election

During the Women in the World Summit in New York, Hillary Clinton gave her first public interview after her 2016 presidential loss. 

When asked about why a majority of white women voted for a Republican male who boasted about groping women, she implied sexism was a factor.

"I don't know that there is one answer...certainly misogyny played a role, I mean that just has to be admitted." 

The answer earned the former secretary of state a standing ovation from the crowd.

She also says people tend to struggle with change that can be exciting to some, but terrifying to others.

"Layer on the first woman president over that and I think some people, women included, had real problems."

Clinton lost the electoral college but won the popular vote and had called the loss devastating and family and friends helped lift her up.

When asked if she'd like to run for office again, the former First Lady gave a hard no.

"I am really focused on just doing some things that I think I can help make a difference with, like this supporting of young people and getting more women into politics, and I very much want to help Democrats take back the Congress..I am looking at doing interesting things -- I don't think that will include ever running for office again."
