Jill Filipovic
2001 Shorewood graduate Jill Filipovic (see previous article) has an opinion piece in Friday's New York Times: Stormy Daniels, Feminist Hero.

Filipovic, author of "The H Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness,” discusses the current situation with Ms Daniels and Mr. Trump in terms of classic roles of women and men in American culture - and how while Mr. Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani are playing stereotypical roles, Ms. Daniels is refusing to be typecast. "A woman who refuses to wear either a scarlet letter or a superwoman’s cape."

"Which is why," Filipovic writes, "there is so much power in the fact that Ms. Daniels does not believe her job or her involvement with Mr. Trump or the payoff is her shame to carry. She wants him held accountable, and the justice system is actually stepping in."
