Perhaps the reason progressives think women in America are so oppressed is that they are treated unfairly in liberal spaces.
Hollywood has a sexism problem, Democratic politicians (Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, the Kennedys, Bob Filner, etc.) really do seem to be of the "Mad Men" era where sexual harassment and womanizing wasn't just accepted but encouraged. -Ashe Schow

A lobbyist who says a sitting lawmaker trapped her in a bathroom and masturbated in front of her told legislators Tuesday that she has not yet named the perpetrator because she fears retaliation that could hurt her ability to make a living.
Pamela Lopez, a partner in K Street consulting, told an Assembly subcommittee investigating sexual harassment at the Capitol that she has long experienced sexual harassment and even assault in her time working in politics.
"I didn’t report the harassment because it was clear nobody wanted to take it seriously. John Conyers is a powerful man in Washington, and nobody wanted to cross him."

Cristy Zercher confided several years ago that Bill Clinton had groped her on his campaign jet, but she laughed off the alleged incident and even seemed "honored" by it, one of Zercher's friends said yesterday.
Carlene Charlemagne, who worked with Zercher at a New Jersey management firm, said Zercher openly discussed the incident three or four years ago and indicated it "wasn't a big deal."
"She said, 'He's a party animal. He groped me and grabbed my boobs,' " Charlemagne said. "She was just laughing about it. She said, 'Can you believe our President would do something like that?'"
