Hillary Clinton: Media double standard on women By: Maggie Haberman April 3, 2014 11:44 PM EDT
Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of Women in the World in New York City Thursday night.
Clintons appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran the gamut from their opinion on the situation in Ukraine to a high-five between the two women when Friedman suggested toward the end that both women could end up in presidencies Lagarde of the European Commission, and Clinton of the United States.
She revealed that an entire chapter of her upcoming book about her time at Foggy Bottom focuses on the sanctions against Iran that, her aides have argued, were responsible for setting the groundwork for bringing Tehran officials to the current negotiations over freezing their nuclear production.
When asked by Friedman about her laying a predicate for the negotiations that began under Secretary of State John Kerry, Clinton said, I write obviously a whole chapter about this because this is the kind of painstaking, microscopic advantages and putting together the international coalition that effect change.
It changed the calculus inside the Iranian government, she said. It took an enormous amount of effort on the part of a lot of us to put that in motion.
She also stressed that she was very proud of the stabilization and the really solid leadership that the administration gave when she and President Barack Obama came into their posts amid the financial crisis.

Go home and watch Chelsea make you a grandkid and bake some cookies you silly little bish
She is correct, there is the media’s Hillary standard, and then the media’s Palin standard, two completely different things.
STFU deadbeat Shillary.
She wants to be an “untouchable” in the same way Obama is.
How about her double standard against women. If anyone is responsible for waging a war on women its the Democrats started by Bill Clinton and waged by Hillary Clinton.
What does Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, know of double standards? Has she ever had a face-to-face conversation with Sarah Palin?
Now THERE is a person who has been subjected to a REAL and unmerciful double standard. And it has little or nothing to do with gender.
Tell Herself to quit whining. Nobody cares just how badly you have been treated. Almost all of Herself’s woe is self-induced.
Do unto others, as you would have them to do unto you.
These people are amazing in their abilities to endlessly flap their drooling mouths saying nothing about utterly nothing. It’s just an endless blatherfest of meaningless cliches. Even more amazing is how so many suckers pay money to listen to them do so.
The woman may be the biggest hypocrite in world history.
The media will trash strong conservative women like Sarah but look the other way when it comes to Hillary. That’s the double standard. How about writing a whole chapter in your book about Benghazi, didn’t think so. You will not be allowed to run in 2016 without telling the truth, Freepers will make sure of that. Bring it on Hillary, I will enjoy watching you melt.
Double Standard my ass -- I'd believe it if you told me that women like Beastwoman were the beneficiaries!
Has anyone seen a searching political critique of, say, Nancy Pelosi or Betty Friedan or Maxine Waters or Valerie Jarrett yet, of the kind of poltically-motivated sigmoidoscopy to which Newt, Dole, Dubya, et al. were regularly subjected by Timesman drones like Tom Friedman?
How about just doing a couple of these Feminazi journalists like MoDo? She's crazy as Creutzfeld-Jakob's cow. Surely Tom could find something to write about?
“and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard”
Like letting them act like out of control tyrants, and them getting to have “pretty in pink” faux interviews to show sympathy/deference to their gender?
Hillary Clinton is a worn out drunk.
hillary clinton is responsible for the murder of 4 Americans. BENGHAZI! Just why do the brain dead listen to this dried-up commie hag? Except for huma, she hates women.
La Garde, Yellen, Sebellius, Barra, Jarrett, the SS Head (what's her name?), Susan Rice, Samantha Power and the list goes on.
They're doing a poor job.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, ANYWAY?
What do Kathleen Willey or Juanita Broaddrick think?
