Selective FeminismThis article ponders the issue of victim blaming in cases of sexual harassment, citing the multifarious responses to women in the media who report being assaulted. The writer contrasts the en masse support for Anita Hill, who reported being assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, with the criticism of Paula Jones, who reported that President Clinton sexually harassed her. He states that feminist responses to sexual assault are biased by a "political double standard," and asserts that responses to assault should not be swayed by political loyalties.
