True face of feminism? Criticism of white women voting GOP sparks heated debate (VIDEO)

True face of feminism? Criticism of white women voting GOP sparks heated debate (VIDEO)
A claim that white women betrayed true feminist values by voting for a GOP candidate in the midterms set off a debate on race and gender. The issue spiralled into a heated argument between conservative and liberal pundits on RT.

Jemele Hill, an Atlantic writer, stirred up a Twitter storm when she accused white women of trading feminist values for supporting Republican candidate Ted Cruz during the Texas Senate race.

RT asked speakers from both camps – M. Reese Everson, a womens' rights advocate and Gina Laudon, a conservative media commentator – to give their takes on the issue and the opponents surely did not mince their words.
