Condi Rice Worries That #MeToo Movement Could Turn Women Into ‘Snowflakes’
Former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice expressed concern that the “Me Too” movement could “infantilize” women and turn them into “snowflakes.”
Rice discussed the movement, which began in response to revelations that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein allegedly raped actresses, in an interview with CNN contributor David Axelrod.
Rice said that she supports the movement but worries that it could end up backfiring on women.
“I think that the movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing. Let’s clear the air about it. I do think we have to be a little bit careful,” she said.
“Let’s not turn women into snowflakes. Let’s not infantilize women.”
The allegations against Weinstein spurred an avalanche of allegations of sexual misconduct against dozens of men in high-profile positions in Hollywood, the media, and politics. But as the movement has gained steam, some women, including self-described feminists, have raised questions similar to Rice’s.
