Martha Coakley In A Panel Discussion of Why the U.S. Women's Movement Is Stalled

The discussion covers the misogyny of last year's election, including the sexist media's irrational hatred of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the double standard applied to Sarah Palin, and the failure of young people to support feminism. The clip ends with an insightful interview of Eleanor Holmes Norton in which she notes that women and children in Europe have it much better. Sigh.

Professor of Law Constance Rudnick moderates this episode of The Massachusetts School of Law's Educational Forum: Women In Government. Featuring Assistant Professor at Occidental College Dr. Caroline Heldmman, Attorney General of Massachusetts Martha Coakley, State Representative Katherine Clark, and Mayor of Salem Kimberly Driscoll.
