Hillary Clinton Pre-Presidential Campaign Imagines a World with Hillary “Not There”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has unveiled a new Clinton Foundation campaign promoting women’s rights called ‘Not There’ that calls on people to imagine a world without women in their lives.
As part of the campaign Clinton has replaced her Twitter avatar of the iconic Diana Walker photo of Hillary in shades checking her Blackberry with a shadow image of a faceless medium-length straight-hair woman. Clinton kept the Walker photo as her Twitter homepage header.
The Gateway Pundit reported Saturday Clinton taking down that photo is conveniently timed with the fallout from her State Department email scandal.
Clinton announced at a Clinton Global Initiative meeting in Miami on Saturday she and daughter Chelsea would be making their avatars disappear and encouraged other women to do the same
Ad Age reported the ‘Not There’ campaign has a broad corporate media tie-in that will remove images of women from ads, magazine covers and billboards:
“The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Foundation introduced an ad campaign on Sunday with the theme “Not There,” drawing attention to women’s rights on International Women’s Day by rendering ads and magazine covers without any women. Cooperating marketers and media companies include Unilever, Under Armour, H&M, Diane von Furstenberg, Conde Nast, Refinery29, iHeartRadio and Snapchat.”
The campaign takes place just weeks before Clinton is thought to be ready to announce her second run for the presidency in April. The ’Not There’ campaign is designed to appeal to Hillary’s core voter group, liberal women, without technically being part of her campaign for president.
Clinton might want to rethink a public image of Hillary being ‘Not There’.
