According to Girls creator Lena Dunham, the media's coverage of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been "rabidly sexist"

She recently spoke out about what she feels is obviously "gendered" coverage of Clinton and her campaign.

“Whether it’s the attacks on her personal life or the adjectives that are used to describe her clothing, we have to do a full reexamination I literally want to make a list that we hand to media outlets that says, ‘these are the words you can’t use when describing a female candidate,'" she said in an interview with Variety.

On that list would be words like "shrill", "difficult", and "frumpy".

Dunham has been in Hillary Clinton's corner for some time now.

Last year, Dunham interviewed Clinton for her digital newsletter.
