‘It Really Does Get Into Your Head.’ The Election, Through the Eyes of Teenage Girls. – The New York Times



In a survey, nearly half of teenage girls said Donald Trump had affected the way they thought about their bodies. A quarter said Hillary Clinton had made them want to lead.

“I don’t think it was right for him to keep trash-talking women,” said Jordan, a Trump supporter. “But the ones toward her are about the choices she has made; he’s not saying that all women are nasty.”

Jaelyn, a Clinton supporter, disagreed. “Women reacted the way they did about it because when you’re attacking one woman,” she said, “you’re attacking all women, because we see each other as sisters.”
