ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) At a campaign stop in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday (September 5) vowed to keep up the fight for woman's rights. "What's good for women is good for America," Clinton told supporters at a "Women for Hillary" event, before taking a jab at her Republican rivals whom she said were "hurling insults at everyone". A Reuters/Ipsos poll in March showed that about two-thirds of Americans believe men are generally paid more than women, a finding that suggests Clinton's message on pay inequality could resonate broadly with Americans as she runs for president. Clinton has championed the economic advancement of women as a former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady. If she is elected to the White House, she would be the first female U.S. president.
