Following an underwhelming performance in the primaries, a disheartened Warren mentioned how sexism clearly played a part in how her candidacy was perceived - an opinion that is shared by most female candidates who ran for president. 

As representative Barbara Lee, who was one of Senator Kamala Harris’s campaign co-chairs, aptly sums up the problem, "“The narrative that somehow women are less electable than men seems to still be an issue. It’s very disgusting really,”
