"Don't underestimate how much antagonism there is toward women and how many people wish we could turn the clock back. One of the things people always say to you if you get upset is "Don't take it personally," but listen hard to what's going on and, please, I beg you, take it personally. Understand every attack on Hillary Clinton for not knowing her place is an attack on you. Underneath almost all those attacks are the words "get back, get back to where you once belonged." When Elizabeth Dole pretends that she isn't serious about her career, that is an attack on you. The acquittal of O.J. Simpson is an attack on you. Any move to limit abortion rights is an attack on you-whether or not you believe ion abortion. The fact that Clarence Thomas is sitting on the Supreme Court today is an attack on you."
