New York, NY (PRWEB) June 3, 2005
Bill Clinton rose to the White House as a self-professed supporter of womenÂs rights, and his wife Senator Hillary Clinton promises to deliver a similar message in her campaign to return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But the ClintonsÂ commitment to womenÂs rights have been called into question by a shocking new book garnering worldwide attention that documents a pattern of disturbing attacks -- including rape -- against women.
ÂItÂs time for Bill and Hillary Clinton to both acknowledge and publicly apologize for their actions,Â says Candice E. Jackson, author of the just-released book ÂTheir Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton MachineÂ (World Ahead Publishing; hardback: $25.95; ISBN 0974670138). ÂAnd on Friday, June 3, weÂre going to call them on it Â- publicly.Â
Following a nationally televised interview on Fox New ChannelÂs popular ÂFox & FriendsÂ morning show in which she will recount the charges, Ms. Jackson will visit the Clinton Foundation office in Harlem and present the former President with a letter of acknowledgement and apology to sign. Spokesmen for both Bill and Hillary Clinton have thus far refused to comment on the allegations in ÂTheir LivesÂ in spite of the fact that copies have been shipped to their respective offices.
ÂThe history of Bill ClintonÂs relationships with women has been one of physical and sexual harassment often followed by threats and intimidation,Â says Jackson. ÂOver and over he has proven himself to be a Âliberal misogynistÂ -- a man who feels that his professed concern for womenÂs political rights gives him free rein to treat individual women like chattel.Â
Whether it was assembling a smear team to attack a grief-stricken widow, threatening a reporter for research an Arkansas health-care scandal, or hiring private investigators to bully an ex-flameÂs family members, Jackson says that Clinton showed no reluctance to go after any woman who inconvenienced his political career. But the blame, according to Jackson, also falls on his wifeÂs shoulders.
ÂHillary could have exercised her influence over him, instead she has stood beside him every step of the way, doing whatever was necessary to keep the Clinton political bandwagon rolling,Â asserts Jackson. ÂThe bottom line is that Hillary has enabled a rapist, and she needs to be called to account for her actions.Â
ÂTheir LivesÂ -- the missing chapters to BillÂs memoir, ÂMy LifeÂ -- has been a source of international controversy and media attention since its debut earlier this week. Publications in India, Britain, China, and Australia have carried articles and excerpts of the book, and announcements regarding foreign rights sales of the book are expected imminently. The author, who herself is a recovering victim of rape, will be signing copies at this weekendÂs Book Expo America.
Jackson plans to arrive at the offices of the William J. Clinton Foundation located at 55 W. 125th Street in New York city at 1:00 PM Eastern on Friday. Community members and representatives of the media are encouraged to attend.
