Violence

What are you going to do about the Juanita Broaddrick rape? Are you people going to come out and defend her? We are just a group of women from the western suburbs of Phil. (15 of us) and we are looking for groups to join and support that are going to come out against Clinton. We feel a terrible thing has happened here, and Clinton should be held accountable. This spin from the White House doesn't wash anymore.

We believe Juanita Broaddrick and want to support and join women's groups who will come out and be as outraged as we are. This behavior from a President is disgusting, and it's like the boy who cried wolf, so many allegations about this president from women, and then the woman being disgraced and called names and degraded has got to stop. We are sick of this type of behavior and sick of Clinton. - Arlene


Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM--and I think it's great that you want to support Juanita Broaddrick. Too often we criticize the rapist without reaching out to the victim. So I hope you do it now and in other cases as well. I know that the National Organization for Women has issued a statement in support of her, so perhaps you should strike an allegiance with them. I think this follows with all of the others cases--Jones, Lewinsky and now Broaddrick--feminists have consistently reached out and supported the women. Whether or not they reciprocated is another story. Good luck.
