Well, it’s been a long night. I watched the BBC coverage since 11:15 pm, but it was worth the wait, because at about 7:45 am we learned that Hillary is herstory.
At one point Andrew Neil, the BBC anchor, said:

One of a number of themes that emerged over the night was that fewer women than expected had voted for Clinton, while more had either declined to vote, or voted for Trump. In some states a majority of female voters plumped for Trump. So even faced with the prospect of voting in the first female President of the United States, many women rejected the feminist candidate.
