Good episode? Give it some love!
Today it’s conventional wisdom that all feminists hypocritically turned their backs on Monica Lewinsky.

For others, it was just as obvious that the scandal was part of a political war in which Clinton was the good guy. In the seventh episode of our series on Clinton’s impeachment, Leon Neyfakh excavates the arguments and ideas that divided liberals—and feminists in particular—at the height of the scandal.
