Girls Inc. — a group that claims it helps to “give confidence to girls” — gave a “champion for girls” award to Hillary Clinton at a New York luncheon on Tudsday.
One woman who doesn’t feel championed by Clinton, Juanita Broaddrick, tore into her over the unwarranted recognition in an interview with The American Mirror.
Broaddrick, who has accused Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting her in 1978, said, “It is difficult for me, a rape survivor of Bill Clinton, to understand how Hillary Clinton could be given the ‘2017 Champion for Girls Award’ from Girls Inc.
“Hillary was never a champion for the women her husband abused. She was the opposite. She threatened and humiliated us,” Broaddrick tells The American Mirror, referring to Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey, as well.
“The leaders of this young women’s group should be ashamed of their actions. By giving this award to Hillary Clinton, they are implying enablers of sexual abuse crimes should not be held accountable.”
“The truth is, life hands all of us setbacks,” Clinton told the audience, which began chuckling.
“I’ve had my ups and my downs. In the last months, I’ve done my share of sleeping, a little soul-searching and reflecting, long walks in the woods,” she said.

Teen Vogue, a publication singled out by Clinton for the quality of its journalism, fawned over Hillary’s appearance.
No one wears a pantsuit quite like Hillary Clinton. From the purple ensemble she wore during her concession speech to the blue pantsuit she chose for her very first post-election speech, Hillary makes powerful statements with each garment she chooses.
On Tuesday, she donned a bright red suit to give a speech at the Girls Inc. luncheon in New York City in honor of Wednesday’s A Day Without a Woman initiative. Red is the official color for the initiative, and women are encouraged to wear it on Wednesday in solidarity.
According to Teen Vogue, her speech was “just as empowering.”
