When the actress was a guest on “The View” Tuesday, Raven-Symoné asked her if she thinks some women “might feel pressured” to vote for Clinton. (RELATED: Susan Sarandon Doesn’t Know If She’d Vote For Hillary Clinton Over Donald Trump)

“There certainly was pressure,” Sarandon said. “There’s been so many statements and shaming.”

“And don’t get me wrong, the idea of a woman president I know will happen and I hope someday it can be the daughter of someone who’s not rich, who’s not married to someone who was a president, that that can happen in this country,” she said.

Sarandon recently endorsed Sanders for president.

She said there are a lot of “closet” Sanders supporters.

“Because if you’re a woman, everybody dumps on you like, ‘How can you be a feminist?'” (RELATED: Susan Sarandon Defends Her Cleavage Against Piers Morgan After He Calls It ‘Horribly Inappropriate’)

Sarandon said Sanders is “the only person that’s not connected to the machine.”

“That’s why I’m so excited because there’s never been a candidate, nor will there ever be a candidate in my lifetime who hasn’t taken money from Wall Street, from super PACs, from Monsanto, from fracking, and I want someone with that moral commitment to people.”
