“I have received more hostility for voting for a qualified female candidate than I have ever received anywhere from the American right-wing,” Dunham said to a crowd of about 200 at NeueHouse.

“The fact that other members of the Democratic Party have spoken to me like I was an ill-informed child for voting for someone who represents everything I think this country should be is outrageous.”

Dunham said she reached a “tipping point” when someone on Instagram told her that “Bernie Sanders has done more for feminism than Hillary Clinton has.” (RELATED: Lena Dunham: The Way The Media Covers Clinton Is ‘Rabidly Sexist’)
