Stein discusses women in politics on RT, addresses San Bernadino shootings

steinrtGreen Party presidential candidate Jill Stein appeared on Tuesday evening‘s edition of RT’s “Watching the Hawks” to discuss how women are scrutinized and objectified in American politics. The interview starts about 14 minutes into the program.

Stein also commented this weekend on the San Bernardino shootings and called for a new approach to combating terrorism. She said, “This despicable assault, following so closely on the shooting at the Planned Parenthood office, must lead us to redouble our efforts to put the world on a path of nonviolence even as we try to intercept those planning to commit such heinous crimes. As we grieve for the latest victims and their families, we must resist the demagoguery that would turn grief into vengeance and expand the catastrophic war on terror. We must likewise resist the deplorable expressions of xenophobia and stand up for the civil rights and civil liberties of Muslims who are in no way implicated in the crimes of ISIS.”
