Hillary, Feminism, and the Age Gap

Having written a book on feminism and the age gap, it's ENDLESSLY interesting to me the way younger women's votes are being taken as a barometer of the state of feminism. To wit, Michael Barone begins his U.S. News article, "Young Women, Feminism, and Hillary Clinton," like so:
"It's interesting that in Iowa, Hillary Clinton lost to Barack Obama by a wide margin among younger women. The idea of a first woman president evidently is not of great appeal to them. I think this is part of a larger story about the decline, or perhaps the maturation, of American feminism."
As Ann over at feministing notes, the reasons one chooses one's candidate are often much more complicated than that.

Regardless, anyone seen the breakdown of women voters by age in New Hampshire yet? Just curious. I know I gotta write more about this somewhere...so many things to write, so little time! Alas.

Meanwhile, be sure to check out the February issue of More for a forum I coordinated in which women in the public eye weigh in with their thoughts on Hillary. Their responses may surprise you.
