I recently moved to the Bay Area from Georgia where it is generally unacceptable to be a liberal/progressive, and supporting Hillary is viewed as the equivalent to supporting the devil.
Donald Trump lies, holds xenophobic and overall bigoted views toward large parts of the American population, and confessed to assaulting women. It is important as a woman, an American and a mother to speak out against Trump's terrifying rhetoric.
I can't speak for all women, but being a woman in the Deep South and supporting Hillary brings about an incredible amount of ridicule and anger. Seriously, anger.
For some women, speaking out in support of Hillary is not worth the repercussions, so they choose to quietly support.
I cannot wait to share the election of the first female president with my daughter. What a beautiful day that will be.
