Female politicians are facing a backlash over women’s rights which has been fuelled by social media that rewards abusive posts and conspiracy theories, former U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Sunday. Women in the public eye still face scrutiny over their looks and pressure to behave politely and meekly in a way that men do not, said Clinton as she discussed a book co-authored with her daughter Chelsea Clinton about inspirational women leaders. “I do think there is a reaction to a lot of the success of women and the roles of women right now,” Clinton told an audience at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in central London.
