Once, I went to a “Female Founder’s” conference for female entrepreneurs and one of the main speakers addressed the audience: “Don’t be afraid to found with your husband. Most female founders I know have founded with their husbands.” Her words filled with me rage, but what she was saying was true; many successful female entrepreneurs I knew did indeed found with their husbands.
Trying to found a company as a woman with a successful male partner is much easier than trying to found a company as a woman with a female partner, a woman with no partner, or a woman with a less successful male partner. This is a highly insidious, type of patriarchy as women are denied access to success on their own and are reliant on their husbands. This crops up all over the place; could a woman who hadn’t been married to a previous president realistically be running right now?
She’s sort of tacitly admitting that Hillary was nothing without Bill.
Update: Maybe that should be a table for two. (Summary: Another diatribe from a smug blue state leftist proclaims how blue states (cities) are superior to red states because they have all the hedge fund managers, opinion journalists, and marketing consultants; whereas the red states are just a bunch of dumb farmers, mechanics, and trades people.)
