The question drew much applause from those in attendance in Pennsylvania where Hillary Clinton held a town-hall, and excited the Democratic presidential nominee, Based on her question, the 15-year-old girl at the microphone had obviously seen and heard some of the things Donald Trump said about women, and she compared those degrading statements to the those other girls in her school go through.
She wanted to know how girls should handle such sexist attacks.
“At my school, body image s a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own eyes what Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look. As the first female president, how would you undo some of that damage and help girls understand they are so much more than what they look?”
After the question was asked, Clinton thanked the girl for asking that question before answering,
“My opponent has just taken this concern to a new level,” she continued. “Think about it, my opponent insulted Miss Universe. How do you get more acclaimed than that?”
Clinton said that women cannot take Trump’s comments seriously anymore.
“We need to laugh at it, we need to refute it, we need to ignore it and stand up to it, and especially the bullying,” Clinton said. “There are too many young women online who are being bullied about how they look and being shamed and mistreated.”
