Readers React: Young feminists should thank their foremothers for Hillary Clinton
To the editor: Kudos to Meghan Daum for taking to task millennial-cum-potential “fourth wavers” for their dismissal of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as “too mainstream.” (“Yes, millennials, Hillary Clinton is a feminist,” Opinion, Jan. 21)
The fact she may seem so is evidence of the success that we of the “second wave” achieved. Instead of dishonoring their foremothers, millennial feminists might take a page from our book when we honored ours, the suffragettes.

To the editor: Why is the left so willing to overlook and mischaracterize Bill Clinton’s exploitive and aggressive behavior toward women? Bill Clinton is not just a womanizer; he is a sexual predator.
Why would any self-respecting woman or feminist want him back in the White House?
