Review of Apple TV+ 'Gutsy', hosted by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, out now in OutSpoken
“In “Gutsy Women Seek Justice,” she talks with a clemency advocate – a wonderful woman serving a just cause – and an appropriate person for any other host to talk with on a show about “gutsy women.” Why don’t politicians do something about this?, the host can lament, and we would share their powerless frustration (maybe). But this host is Hillary Clinton. The gall to do this segment without any acknowledgement – let alone repentance! – that it was her husband’s “Three Strikes Bill” and her racist “super-predator” paranoia rhetoric that put these people away for far too long is astonishing. When it hits the fourth episode – on love and marriage – and they talk about the sexual abuse of vulnerable women, or how The Defense of Marriage Act hurt gay couples, you want to scream at the television. Wow, the Defense of Marriage Act really was terrible; I wonder who signed that into law? If only we could hold those people to account! And workplace sexual harassment? Tut tut, unacceptable, we must do better.”
