Schyman about Hillary Clinton: “The time is ripe for political feminism.” – Helsingborgs Dagblad

Hillary Clinton takes feminism seriously place in American politics. Schyman will be inspired by Martin Gelin book about Clinton.

I can not help but be optimistic when I read Martin Gelin’s book “the longest fight – Hillary Clinton’s rise to power.” It seems to simmer of feminist rhetoric and practice in the United States and the impression I get is that as long detested the F-word, feminism has a new and broader meaning, also in the United States. I say “also” because it happened here, in Sweden and in several other countries in Europe. While there has been a polarization of public debate, hatred and threats against feminists hails, both on the street and online, so has the understanding both deepened and broadened. The inclusive feminism where more power structures are made visible and interact, where the movements for women’s rights interacts with rights movement based on class, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or functionality, and no longer stand against each other but mutually reinforcing; there is a political dimension that is now growing. It became clear in the last election campaign in Sweden and it is a fundamental dimension of the presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton runs.
