Hillary Clinton said women who run for president in the future such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., will face a double standard because they are women.

"You have to have a high pain threshold, because the double standard is alive and well," Clinton said during a Monday book tour stop in Oakland, according to Politico.

"This is endemic to our political system, to business, to the media, to every part of society. So don't be afraid to talk about it and take it on," the former Democratic presidential candidate said, according to Politico.

"Be prepared to have the most horrible things said about you," Clinton said, adding that based on what some websites said about her, "I'm . . . the most amazing serial killer you've ever met."

"There's a particular level of vitriol, from the right and the left, directed at women. Make no mistake about that," Clinton added.

Although some critics, including Democrats, have called on her to retire, Clinton said she would not.

"I'm going to do everything I can, going forward, as an active citizen to speak out," she said.

Clinton also has criticized Republicans after the Las Vegas shootings. During an appearance on "The Tonight Show," she said Republicans are "totally sold to the gun lobby."
