Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

    Although the spotlight is on former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, other women have come forward to tell of sexual advances, both welcome and unwelcome, from President Clinton — Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, and according to the same source that leaked the Lewinsky story, a former White House aide named Kathleen Willey.

    The allegations of these women, if true, point to a pattern of sexual misconduct, much like the one that led to the downfall of another pro-choice politician known for his professional support of women — former Oregon Senator Bob Packwood.

    Joining us now on the line is Florence Graves, the reporter who broke the Packwood sexual misconduct story in the Washington Post, along with our guests professors Catherine MacKinnon and Linda Hirshman, and columnist Katha Pollitt.

    Guest:

    • Florence Graves, reporter who broke the Bob Packwood sexual misconduct story in the Washington Post, founding editor of Common Cause magazine, currently a resident scholar at Brandeis University
