Trump lurks behind Clinton during the second presidential debate. 

In the most literal sense, no woman could relate to Hillary Clinton Sunday night as she stood on the presidential debate stage. Yet somehow, every woman could. 

Clinton showed up prepared to act how women are taught we need to in order to prove ourselves in male-dominated space: She came armed with facts, kept her composure as to not seem emotional, and forced a smile when there was nothing to smile about. The democratic nominee was met by a man (if you could call him that) who interrupted her constantly to mansplain topics he knows nothing about, lost his temper when his ego was bruised, made light of his own rape-y comments, and lurked behind her intimidatingly as to imply: This is a man’s world, you’re just livin’ in it.

Honestly, what women hasn’t been there?

Here are 30 tweets from women who knew exactly how Clinton felt Sunday night:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
