Violence against women

I don’t know why letter writer Russell Shepherd found it necessary to bring Bill Clinton into a current affairs discussion (“Bill Clinton was worse,” Nov. 28). We said a great deal about President Clinton back in his day, including impeachment proceedings. Now we have a president-elect caught on video laughing about his sexual abuse of women by uninvited groping.

Trump was smart enough to choose an attorney general who publicly stated that he does not believe uninvited groping is sexual abuse, so Trump is unlikely to face any consequences for his horrible behavior.

Violence against women is rampant in this country. We cannot expect protection to come from our leaders, so let’s get our daughters and granddaughters into self-defense classes. They will need to learn to protect themselves.
