NOW has no credibility left after they stood silent as President Clinton abused and demeaned women for years, but they appear to be trying to regain their former stature.
National Organization for Women (NOW) president Terry O’Neill on Wednesday called President Obama’s critique of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) sexist.
O’Neill told The Hill she took issue with Obama calling Warren by her first name during an interview with Yahoo News published Saturday.
“Yes, I think it is sexist,” O’Neill said. “I think the president was trying to build up his own trustworthiness on this issue by convincing us that Senator Warren’s concerns are not to be taken seriously. But he did it in a sexist way.”
I don’t know that NOW is right on this one. Obama’s reference to Warren by her first name was certainly condescending, but I don’t think it was necessarily sexist. He does the same thing with dudes with whom he disagrees.
