The Politics of Feminism: It's Not All about Gender Democrat Hillary Clinton would be the first woman president, but many self-styled "feminists" are not supporting her candidacy. Some advocates of women's rights back Bernie Sanders, while Republican Carly Fiorina insists that she and other conservatives are also "feminists." The idea has evolved from the suffragettes to Roe v. Wade to Betty Friedan to Beyoncé. Different opinions between and within generations could make a difference in this year's primary elections.

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
