The Economist: All Audio
May 12, 2016 In our second episode, we examine the complexities of why American voters may select or reject their first female leader. Celeste and John talk about how Clinton's second attempt to win the Oval Office may be helped — or hurt — by her gender. Guest Joanne Bamberger, author of "Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox," speaks about the complexities of how female voters view Clinton and the personal and political choices she's made. And later, Economist Senior Editor Anne McElvoy contrasts Clinton's quest with how women such as Margaret Thatcher and Angela Merkel rose to power in Europe.
