This chapter discusses some of the most dramatic developments in the issue of sexual harassment leading up to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. The cases of Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky are discussed, in particular, how they were studied in the 1998 conference at Yale Law School. After this conference, the sexual harassment situation became very, very serious. Before the conference, however, it was all treated as a big joke. Prior to the spring of 1998, the nation was given to perceive Jones as a trailer-park-pawn-of-the-right-wing and the Lewinsky incident as an overblown instance of poor personal judgment by a person who happened to be President. All this, the perception went, would have been small potatoes were it not for those few loonies who thought sexual harassment was something the government should waste time worrying about.
