Liberal women, feminists, and Hillary Clinton supporters tore into Women's March organizers on Thursday for their decision to have the decidedly male Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.) headline their 2017 convention.

Tamika Mallory, co-founder of Women's March, said on Wednesday night that Sanders was the right choice to headline the first National Women's Convention in 40 years. Not everyone agreed.

Many critics questioned Sanders' feminist credentials, citing his criticism of Planned Parenthood, his support of pro-life Democratic candidates, and his campaign against Clinton.
