Clinton slams sexism during 2008 presidential campaign; optimistic about 2016

Hillary Clinton says a woman running for President in 2016 will encounter a more welcoming political landscape than she did in 2008.

"I think over the last six, seven years there has been a greater awareness in the American public about the double standard,” Clinton told ABC’s “Good Morning America. “I really believe there’s a great discussion going on now. And whether it’s somebody running for president or somebody climbing the corporate ladder or broadcasting or anything else, there’s much greater awareness and that’s all to the good.”

Is there less sexism in politics now than there was in 2008?
