Hillary Clinton: Large Portion of US 'Uneasy,' 'Angry' About Women Seeking Power

A significant chunk of Ms Clinton's talk with Ms Gillard in Melbourne was spent discussing sexism and misogyny

Speaking in Australia on Monday, the former Presidential candidate told broadcaster ABC that global meddling was a threat to all parties.

Under both Democrat and Republican governments, the US herself has been found guilty in many countries of interfering covertly to gain political power and to influence policy - and, I add, waging war.

"We have an interest in making sure that decisions that are made by our governments are not the result of some influence peddling by a foreign power".

The former First Lady's comments have angered Chinese authorities who have attacked the stories as paranoia.

"The Russians are still playing on anything and everything they can to turn Americans against each other, from issues of race and gun violence to the humanitarian crisis in Syria", she said.

In December, Australia's Prime Minister proposed banning foreign political donations, citing "disturbing reports about Chinese influence".

'This is bigger than one candidate, one election or even one country, ' she said.

Will Meghan Markle's father skip the royal wedding?
Markle secretly hired an LA-based paparazzi to take "candid" photos of him preparing for the big day, it was revealed this week. Kensington Palace issued a statement Monday following a report Meghan Markle's father wont attend her wedding to Prince Harry .

But Ms Clinton warns that 'It's not just happening in the United States.

The country has been hit with several allegations of Chinese meddling in recent months.

Eight thousand fans flocked to Sydney's International Convention Centre to listen to the former Secretary of State tackle everything from female success, online trolls, and misogyny, to her defeat in the 2016 USA presidential election to Donald Trump.

She said: "There is certainly a lot of smoke". During our training exercises we were presented with leering, Oriental-faced targets to fire our bullets into, and straw-stuffed Oriental effigies to rifle-bayonet away to our heart's content.

Clinton said such t-shirts said "horrible things" about her, and that they appeared to make her the exception: "I'm not for "that" woman".

Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton fears the rise of authoritarianism and illiberal democracies like Russian Federation has left the world at a risky crossroads.
