Does gender still play a role in our lives? Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin would likely answer that question with a resounding “Yes!” There are some who believe that Clinton lost to Barack Obama in the bid to be the Democratic Party’s candidate for President because sexism proved to be an even stronger force than racism. Others do not accept this as a valid reason. Some believe that John McCain selected Sarah Palin as his running mate out of a desire to capitalize on the anger felt by Hillary Clinton’s former supporters. Others do not accept this as the rationale. Do you believe that gender was a factor, and if so, what role does gender play in your life?
