Sen. Hirono: When Trump Admits To Being a Sexual Predator, It Shows How We Objectify Women in Our Culture
HIRONO: "I think some progress has been made. I think maybe the younger generation is more aware of these kinds of behaviors, but it is pervasive and obviously we have not eradicated this kind of unwanted sexual attention and innuendo. Practically every woman that I know has experienced this to some degree and as I said, you know, it’s not cute. It’s not fun. And when you have the president who admits to being a sexual predator, it goes to show how we objectify women in our culture and we must start somewhere and that’s why I think it’s important for us to take this moment to step forward and stand in solidarity and enable more women to just come out and talk about it, and you know, I hope that this results in the guys, because it’s usually the guys who are hassling us, to think twice before they say stupid things to us."
