Hillary Clinton vowed to “change” her Twitter bio after it was pointed out at she lists “wife” first, while Bill Clinton doesn’t acknowledge her in his.
This is apparently the depth of the feminist struggle today.
While addressing the World Voices Festival on Sunday, Hillary was quizzed about “the fact that ‘wife’ comes first in @HillaryClinton‘s Twitter bio whereas the same order does not apply to her husband,” attendee Jazmin Kay reports.

“Well, when you put it like that, I’m going to change it,” she reportedly responded to feminist writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
As of Sunday evening, Clinton’s Twitter bio hadn’t changed:
Earlier in her appearance, the failed Democratic candidate drew laughs when she had trouble saying “Pinterest,” a picture and recipe sharing site popular among women.

“For anyone who thinks our country is invulnerable to propaganda, or attempts to suppress free expression, you only have to look at the 2016 election, which was a case study in the weaponization of false information and outright lies against our democracy,” Clinton said dramatically.
“We now know that Russian agents used Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube — even Pinterest,” she continued, botching the pronunciation.
The crowd broke out into laughs.
“I’m still trying to figure that one out,” she said.
“But they used these very well-trafficked sites to place targeted attack ads and negative stories intended not only to hurt me, but more importantly — and lastingly — to fan the flames of division within our society,” Clinton said, citing posts advocating for gun rights and Black Lives Matter.
Hillary was a guest of PEN World Voices, which has the theme of “Resist & Reimagine” this year.
