5 lessons the Aziz Ansari story can teach women about power and leadership in their own careers.


Remember that story about Taylor Swift chasing an aspiring musician around her hotel room until he had to hide, afraid, in the bathroom? No? Me neither.

Remember that story about Beyoncé groping people while they posed with her for photographs? No? Me neither.

Remember that time Hillary Clinton confessed to assaulting people, the confession was aired on national television, and she still got elected President? No? Me neither.

But, I do remember Taylor Swift getting sued (SUED!!) for talking about someone assaulting her. I do remember Beyoncé getting pushback for talking about her husband’s infidelity. I do remember decades of Hillary Clinton getting called shrill and criticized for questioning male leadership.
