Kalpana Sharma’s “Being Hillary” is not a feminist outburst but certain undeniable facts which expose the mindset of the American voters who seem to be not yet ready to accept a woman as their President. Reflecting this mindset is the American “free press” which indulged in cheap personal attacks against Hillary Clinton; the kind of attack any other female candidate would have faced. The message seems to be “Thus far and no further”.
