People Don't Get Why Bernie Sanders Is Speaking At The Women's Convention

Women's Convention will run from October 27-29 in Detroit offering workshops forums and strategy sessions with a focus on the 2018 midterm elections

Hundreds of thousands of women attended the Women's March on Washington on January 21, the day after Donald Trump's inauguration. There are plenty women in politics who could talk at the convention.

"We invited many elected officials to our convention that align with the objective and mission of our existence - to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change", the Woman's March organizers wrote in a Facebook post. "Although their schedules did not allow them to join us in Detroit the weekend of October 27, they will be fighting for our shared values, as they do every day", a statement from the group said.

"I think that right now, no one can deny that Bernie Sanders is probably one of the most powerful USA senators. on progressive issues, women's issues, mobilizing millennials", Mallory said. Reid and Tanden, who both supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, said on Twitter that the organization should have chosen a woman instead.

"I'm honored to join the women at the front lines of our struggle for economic, social, racial and environmental justice".

But the choice of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders as the lead speaker at the convention has sparked criticism from commentators, who suggested that a woman should have opened the event.

The Women's March gained notoriety in January when thousands of women descended on Washington, D.C.to protest Donald Trump's inauguration.

"I don't know what's dumber: people thinking the #WomensConvention can afford Hillary or Beyoncé or that they think it's a moneymaking scheme", one user tweeted.

Clinton later responded to Sanders's statement, saying: "I've been told to stop, and, I quote, 'shouting about gun violence.' Well, first of all, I'm not shouting". He's just excited for the opportunity to stand in solidarity with women. Sanders denied that his comments were sexist.

The term Bernie Bro was coined in an October 2015 article in The Atlantic, which described Bernie Bros as "very male" as well as "white; well-educated; middle-class (or, delicately, "upper middle-class"); and aware of NPR podcasts and jangly bearded bands".
