Hillary Clinton's not the only woman at the DNC running for president

Hoping to draw the Bernie-or-bust folks to her cause, the Green Party's Jill Stein has been in the thick of their protests at this week's Democratic National Convention in Philly.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are both historically unpopular presidential nominees. The Massachusetts-based physician sees an opening with her platform for economic equality, racial justice, climate change action and the fight for LGBTQ rights.

Stein says Clinton and Trump represent everything that's wrong with establishment politics.

"Don't let them persuade you that you have to throw yourself under the bus. They've been throwing you under the bus quite enough," she said.

This marks Stein's second bid for the White House. She ran on the Green Party ticket in 2012, receiving 0.36 percent of the vote. Her party's best showing was Ralph Nader's 2000 run when he walked away with about 3 percent nationwide.
