Condoleeza Rice Concerned #MeToo Campaign Could Infantilize Women

  Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice weighed in on the #MeToo controversy in an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod and cautioned that women need to be careful about it.

   “I think the movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing,” Rice said. “Let’s clear the air about it.
     “I do think we have to be careful. Let’s not turn women into snowflakes. Let's not infantilize women and what I really don’t want to happen is I don’t want it to get to a place where men start to think maybe it's just better not to have women around.'
I've heard a little bit of that. And it, it worries me.”
     While Rice—who made history as the first African-American woman to become secretary of state—has never been a victim of assault, she revealed that there have been occasions on which people have said inappropriate things. 
     “I’ve never had anyone do anything I would consider assault”, said the 63-year old Stanford University professor, “but I don’t know a woman alive who hasn’t had somebody say or do something that was inappropriate at best and aggressive at worst.”
