Hillary Clinton has wrapped up her speaking tour of Australia with an appearance in Sydney.

Hillary Clinton’s shock election loss in 2016 has been endlessly picked apart, from the highest levels of political commentary, to family dinner tables around the world.

But this week, Australians were given the chance to hear from the battle-scarred former US presidential candidate herself.

“People ask how I’m doing, I say as a person I’m doing OK, but I’m pretty concerned about America,” she told the largely supportive crowd in Sydney on Friday, after appearing in Melbourne on Thursday.

Hillary Clinton has spoken out against what she says are the “impossibly high standards” women who aspire to leadership roles are held to.

Ms Clinton says the “minute a women (in the US) stands up and says ‘Id like to lead’ everything changes”

Speaking to an audience in Auckland tonight, Ms Clinton – who ran against Donald Trump in the 2016 US Presidential election quoted recent comments from former US First Lady Michelle Obama.

“A few days ago Michelle Obama pointed out the consequences of holding women to impossibly high standards,” Ms Clinton said.

Speaking to a sold-out crowd at the Vancouver Convention Centre, former U.S. secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton shared her views on her country’s political landscape, particularly in light of Roy Moore’s recent defeat in Alabama.

“The combination of Roy Moore, Steve Bannon and Donald Trump proved to be too much for a lot of Alabama Republicans to stomach,” she said in Vancouver, B.C. on Wednesday. “I think that for me it was a very important turning point in basically holding President Trump and his most vitriolic, destructive advisors led by Steve Bannon accountable.”

Moore, a former judge, faced controversy leading up to the election as he was accused of sexual misconduct with teenagers when he was in his 30s. Ahead of Clinton’s talk, fans waiting outside said they hoped she would to take the opportunity to weigh in on the highly controversial candidate’s defeat.

December 13th 2017Linda Solomon Wood

For readability, I’ve added subtitles, in my own words, and a few other things in parentheses for clarity. Okay, let’s get into it. It was a fascinating talk…

The line wrapped around the block of Elliott Bay Book Company Tuesday as people waited to meet Hillary Clinton during her book tour stop in Seattle.

Clinton, the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major party, won the popular vote in Washington state during the election last year.

In the wake of her unexpected loss to Donald Trump, she took to writing her memoir, “What Happened.”

During her talk at the Paramount Theater Monday – sold out, with standing room only – she reflected on what she believes stopped her from becoming the first woman president. Many things not in her favor, she says, including FBI inference, uninspired voters, but most notably sexism.

“These days when people say to me, ‘How are you?’ I say, ‘Well, as a person, I’m OK. As an American, I’m really concerned,’” she said.

“The only way we will get sexism out of politics is to get more women into politics.”
