"The conversation was an uncomfortable watch, albeit an important one. Two decades have passed, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't look back and reflect on what happened in hopes of learning from the situation. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be Clinton's point of view.
Yes, it's great that he has supported women in many ways during his political career, but that doesn't absolve him from bad behavior, especially as it relates to Lewinsky. Doing good work and behaving inappropriately are two things that can be true at the same time. But the defensive and smug tone of his responses indicates to me that Clinton is unchanged in looking at the role he played in the situation.
And that's incredibly disheartening.
As women, we can continue to tell our stories, to speak our truth, to call out bad behavior that has been tolerated for far too long. But when men, especially leaders, refuse to acknowledge their own roles in the culture of harassment, progress will come much more slowly."
