Misogyny certainly contributed to electoral loss, says Hillary Clinton

I have to ask fundamentally, a man who bragged about sexual assault won the election and won 53% of the white women's vote. Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that "she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it's been analyzed by many of us".

"I think in this election there was a very real struggle between what is viewed as change that is welcomed and exciting to so many Americans and change which is worrisome and threatening to so many others".

During her 30-minute speech, Clinton called on the audience to hold those in power accountable.

The aftermath of the election was so devastating. In the brief clip, she fell short of praising the military action that came days after suspected Syrian military planes dropped chemical weapons on a village in the country's north and left dozens of the civilians dead.

Referring to Trump's administration, she added, "I also hope that they will recognize that we can not in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close American doors to them". "And that just has to be admitted, and why and what the underlying reasons for that is what I'm trying to figure out myself", she told Kristof. In her first interview since she lost, Clinton said she "wrestles" with the fact that her gender did influence the results.

"As a person, I'm ok". "I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing", she said, on his policies. "I think there's a lot to do", she answered. Oh, and she revealed that she is working on another book.

Clinton also expressed her confusion at the government's attacks on certain groups of people - Muslims and women in particular.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, she said, wanted to destabilise Europe, NATO and the United States and was personally opposed to her after she criticised Russian elections while secretary of state.

Clinton said she has no intention of another run for public office and said she is writing a book that, in part, delves into what derailed her attempt to become America's first woman president. The former senator also indicated that she plans to now work to encourage young women to follow their dreams by running for office.
