Corresponding with Amanda Renteria over email this week was very different from when my colleagues profiled her this past November, no less. The national political director for Hillary Clinton 2016, the Democrat’s presidential campaign, was quite hopeful that day. At the time, as you can see in the video above, she was decidedly excited about the outcome of the election.

While President-elect Donald Trump teased an action plan for his administration at his first post-election rally Thursday in Cincinnati, Ohio, he spent most of the evening taking a victory lap, touting his election night win over two dozen times as he recounted his campaign successes and mocked the media coverage of the election.

On Wednesday, she woke up inconsolable. On Thursday, angry. But on the Friday after the presidential election, as she prepared posters to join thousands in protesting Donald Trump’s victory, Mia Hernández came to a quiet realization: If she found her country’s direction intolerable, she would have to try to change it.

The US presidential election was marked by “graphic sexism” against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and was proof that progress for women was not inevitable, Labor’s deputy leader, Tanya Plibersek, said on Friday.

During the presidential campaign, many Americans, notably those most likely to have voted for Hillary Clinton, were on the receiving end of torrents of vitriol coming from Donald Trump and his supporters: They were caricatured as rapists and criminals, bimbos, dogs, and pigs, and subjected to the humiliation of watching a man repeatedly accused of sexual assault run for president, advised by a cadre of racists adorably referred to as members of the “alt-right,” all while our first black president and first woman nominee were regularly called crooks and threatened with imprisonment and execution.

A survey by the career website InHerSight found that 76 percent of women felt worse about their own careers after seeing the election results. The site asked 750 women the question “How have the election results made you feel about your own prospects for advancement in your career?”

The gender gap was a key part of the narrative this election season. Overall, 54% of all women voters said they voted for Clinton, while about the same proportion of men supported Trump (53%), the NBC News exit poll found. But among whites, the story was very different – particularly among men and women living in rural areas or small towns.
