Bernie Sanders trounced Hillary Clinton at the first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire in part due to an overwhelming support from young voters and women.

According to Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Cole, the results reflect voters' search for something "new" and how they see the former secretary of state as part of the government establishment that has let them down.

"So Bernie feels like this exciting, feel-good candidate who's promising free education - very appealing if you're a young millennial, and I think that Hillary is ... running from a much more moderate place promising more of the same," Cole said. "And Bernie is promising something new, and he's right out on the front running a very aggressive primary campaign."

Cole also said that voters have "Hillary fatigue" and a desire for change after seeing her in the public eye for over two decades.

While iconic feminist figures have come forward to endorse Clinton, their comments have backfired.

"When you're young, you're thinking, 'Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,'" Gloria Steinem said during an interview with talk show host Bill Maher. She went on to apologize, saying she "misspoke."

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright also drew fire for her comment at a Clinton rally ahead of the New Hampshire primary, saying, "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other."

A CBS News exit poll shows Sanders beat Clinton by 11 points among all female voters in New Hampshire.

"Well I think you can never come out and tell a young generation what they should think or what they must think or how lucky they are to be in the position," Cole said.

Comparing Clinton to pop stars like Beyonce and Rihanna, she said Clinton was not seen as a feminist icon by young women.

"I do think this is a generation that looks at Beyonce and thinks, 'I want to be like them,'" Cole said, alluding to the ongoing buzz around her Super Bowl halftime performance.

Still, Cole said it was too early to tell and wrong to assume the results in New Hampshire would dictate the rest of the election.

Both CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today on Thursday devoted lengthy segments to fretting over Hillary Clinton’s failure to gain support among young female voters. Hosts on the two network morning shows wrung their hands while discussing how Clinton was “trounced” in New Hampshire by Bernie Sanders due to her “surprising struggle” to win over women.

CBS turned to Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles to explain the Democratic candidate’s difficulty, with co-host Norah O’Donnell wondering: “New Hampshire, there’s no doubt she got trounced by Bernie Sanders among all demographic groups, including women. What happened?” Coles argued: “...voters are looking for something new....there is a huge mistrust of American institutions....And, of course, Hillary Clinton is seen as part of that establishment....she’s actually running from a much more moderate place, promising more of the same.”

At one point in the exchange, things got so heated that Coles accused co-host Charlie Rose of being “sexist” when he asked her about whether women support Clinton:

ROSE: Okay, but what Norah’s asking, is Hillary doing worse outside of New Hampshire? Is there, in the nation, a sense that women are perfectly happy with her?

COLES: Well, first of all –

ROSE: Other than those who separate themselves out because of they’re millennials?

COLES: First of all, I think – I love your questioning, I think it's deeply sexist. The idea that women vote only with their vaginas is as ridiculous as suggesting that men vote only with their penises. They vote for the things they care about.

Minutes later, Coles declared pop singers had more influence over young women than Clinton: “I don't think women look at Hillary and think she is their feminist icon. I think young women think of Beyonce or Rihanna as their feminist icon.” Doubling down on that assertion, Coles proclaimed: “I do think that this is a generation that look at Beyonce and think, ‘I want to be like her.’ Look at the way she won the Super Bowl, right? No one can remember if it was the Broncos or the Panthers. Beyonce came out of that the winner.”

Co-host Gayle King worried about the possibility of “Clinton fatigue” in the electorate, prompting Coles to observe: “We are taught to want new things. And Hillary Clinton, as she herself said at her Democratic town hall on CNN, she’s been around in the public eye for 25 years, and that feels dull. People want change.”

However, Coles predicted women would flock to Clinton in a general election to stop the GOP: “That doesn't mean they won't support her in the actual general election when she’s up against some of the Republican candidates who want to say women have no right to choose and have no access to abortion, which I do think is an important issue for young women.”

King reassured viewers: “And the race is still early, we’ve only had two states.” Coles agreed: “Very early. Very early. We can't assume that New Hampshire is gonna dictate the rest of the election.”

On Today, co-host Matt Lauer noted “the surprising struggle facing Hillary Clinton.” Followed by fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie posing the question: “...why is she having trouble courting female voters?”

Correspondent Andrea Mitchell began her report on the topic by acknowledging: “Well, with arguably the world's most famous woman running for president many expected there would be a gender gap. Few knew it would break in favor of Bernie Sanders, who beat Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 59 points with young women and even 11 points among all women.”

The headline on screen read: “Hillary Clinton’s ‘Women Problem’; Dem Front-Runner Facing Serious Generational Challenge.”

Amid sounbites of young women supporting Sanders, Mitchell highlighted controversies over recent statements from Clinton supporters:

MITCHELL: ...the first female secretary of state, Madeline Albright. This week, Albright still campaigning by her side.

MADELINE ALBRIGHT: A lot of you younger women don't think you have to – that it’s been done. It’s not done. Just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don't help each other.

MITCHELL: A phrase she’s used for years, but it provoked young women, who broke heavily for Bernie Sanders....And igniting outrage on Twitter, after feminist icon Gloria Steinem said some women supported Sanders just to meet boys.

GLORIA STEINEM: And when you’re young, you’re thinking, you know, where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie.

Mitchell concluded the report by remarking that Clinton was “now worried her appeal may be falling through the cracks.”

In a discussion that followed the report, Guthrie opined: “I guess there’s a certain irony here because the biggest and surest sign of progress in the women's movement is that younger women don't necessarily look at the candidate's gender as a reason to vote for him or her.”

Lauer denounced Albright’s comments: “...it’s insulting when you hear Madeleine Albright say what she says. As if, ‘Don't look at credentials, don’t look at policies, don’t look at issues. You’re a woman, vote for a woman.’ It just makes no sense.”

Mitchell rushed to her defense:

Well, it's a phrase I’ve heard her use since 1995 in Beijing. It’s even on a Starbucks cup. The problem was the context. She says it jokingly, but she said it here at a rally with young women and it seemed to be scolding them. And so, that’s, I think, the problem. That was out of context. Steinem, a different issue, she’s not working with the campaign, she was just on, you know, the Bill Maher show and a completely separate issue.

Though even Mitchell expressed frustration at the Clinton campaign:

But I think young women don’t feel that connection. And if you’re Hillary Clinton and you came out of Wellesley you were the valedictorian, you have this life story, which they’re telling improbably in a campaign video at all of her rallies. They don't want to hear what she did. They want to know what can she do for them. And she talks about “I,” not about “We,” as Bernie Sanders does. And they want to know, you know, how are you going to help me with the sexual assault issue, with what’s happening in social media, how to get a job? And she’s not being specific about that.

Guthrie replied: “Isn't this just a larger symptom of what’s going on with Hillary Clinton’s campaign? Is that Bernie Sanders seems to have keyed in on this message that a lot of voters, particularly young voters, find very inspiring and Hillary Clinton has not yet found that message for her campaign?”

MSNBC political analyst Nicolle Wallace warned: “She hasn't found the message. The problem is that she’s looking for one. Bernie Sanders didn't go out hunting for a message, he is who he is. He is his revolution. Hillary Clinton's campaign is struggling full stop.”

Lauer added: “And you’re not struggling to find a message a year out from Iowa, you’re struggling to find a message in the thick of the primary season.” Wallace responded: “Exactly, it is way too late to still be trying to find her voice, as she said.”

Joint Resolution of Congress proposing a constitutional amendment extending the right of suffrage to women, May 19, 1919; Ratified Amendments, 1795-1992; General Records of the United States Government; Record Group 11; National Archives.

Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone required a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of agitation and protest. Beginning in the mid-19th century, several generations of woman suffrage supporters lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to achieve what many Americans considered a radical change of the Constitution. Few early supporters lived to see final victory in 1920.

Beginning in the 1800s, women organized, petitioned, and picketed to win the right to vote, but it took them decades to accomplish their purpose. Between 1878, when the amendment was first introduced in Congress, and August 18, 1920, when it was ratified, champions of voting rights for women worked tirelessly, but strategies for achieving their goal varied. Some pursued a strategy of passing suffrage acts in each state—nine western states adopted woman suffrage legislation by 1912. Others challenged male-only voting laws in the courts. Militant suffragists used tactics such as parades, silent vigils, and hunger strikes. Often supporters met fierce resistance. Opponents heckled, jailed, and sometimes physically abused them.

By 1916, almost all of the major suffrage organizations were united behind the goal of a constitutional amendment. When New York adopted woman suffrage in 1917 and President Wilson changed his position to support an amendment in 1918, the political balance began to shift.

On May 21, 1919, the House of Representatives passed the amendment, and 2 weeks later, the Senate followed. When Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the amendment on August 18, 1920, the amendment passed its final hurdle of obtaining the agreement of three-fourths of the states. Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby certified the ratification on August 26, 1920, changing the face of the American electorate forever.

Этот важный для нашего здоровья микроэлемент входит в состав многих продуктов, но в некоторых из них его намного больше, чем в остальных. Предлагаем с ними познакомиться.

Без железа в нашем организме невозможно производство гемоглобина – важного белка, помогающего эритроцитам переносить кислород к каждой части нашего тела. А еще железо является компонентом миоглобина — белка сердечной и скелетных мышц.

В среднем взрослый мужчина нуждается приблизительно в 8 миллиграммах железа в день, а женщинам, не достигшим периода менопаузы, необходимо около 18 миллиграммов в день. Соблюдать эти рекомендации несложно, достаточно включить в рацион железосодержащие продукты. Вот несколько из них.

Массовая миграция из Российской империи в США в конце XIX - начале XX века привела за океан разных людей, поспособствовала ухудшению образа России в Америке, но и обогатила собственно американскую общественную жизнь. Одной из самых ярких представителей этой волны была Эмма Голдман (1869-1940), анархистка, феминистка, террористка, пацифистка, писательница, активистка рабочего движения, в конце концов высланная из США обратно в Россию - уже советскую, но не прижившуюся там.

Но обо всем по порядку.
