Dulles NOW Statement of Support
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dulles NOW Chapter
August 19, 2000

USA Prudhomme Speaks

The Friends of Juanita Broaddrick will rally in front of Mrs. Clinton Campaign headquarters in New York today at noon.  The following is Dulles NOW's Statement of Support.

" We are honored to be here today and we thank Katherine and the Friends of Juanita Broaddrick for inviting breakaway Dulles NOW to participate in their rally.  The unfaltering support they have given Mrs. Broaddrick has brought encouragement and hope to many women similarly victimized and we admire the dedication they have shown to advance the cause of human rights.

Standing in stark contrast to the strangely silent women's groups formerly convulsed in outrage over Anita Hill's soda can, Katherine Prudhomme embodied the very spirit of true feminism when she courageously asked Vice-president Gore in front of a televised audience: "Do you believe Juanita Broaddrick?".  Possibly aware that no controlling legal authorities were firmly in place at the time of the assault, Mr. Gore's vague reply was indicative of how desperately Democrat faithful wanted to ignore her very existence.

Asked the same question, Betty Friedan repeatedly professed that she had never heard of Juanita.  NOW's Patricia Ireland found her credible AND responsible for the unspeakable crime.  Health Secretary Shalala said she had reached no conclusion, busy as she was serving the president and Susan Estrich exhorted all to "move on".

This gathering is a reminder that the story of Mrs. Broaddrick has not, and will not, "move on" and that it looms larger every day.  Katherine and her Friends have come here to ask again "Do you believe Juanita?".  As a candidate to high office, it is a fair question for Mrs. Clinton to answer."
