God help us all if Hillary Clinton doesn't triumph over Trump

As a man, I have felt for a long time that the under-representation of the majority of the population, women, in the decision-making forums of what are supposed to be representative democracies is one of the major faults of democratic rule worldwide. I think that marginalising the talents, perspectives and interests of such an important and vital majority is not in anyone's interest.
I am, therefore, totally at a loss when I see Hillary Clinton described in what is supposed to be rational political discourse as a "dinosaur", "tarnished", "crooked" and a "feminist Nazi" - and these descriptions are unchallenged.
I cannot understand why her second attempt to be the first woman to become the most powerful politician in the world is meeting with so much opposition, especially from women.
