A new book by journalist Ron Suskind chronicles complaints by some female White House staffers about a hostile work environment towards women.
In “Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington and the Education of a President,” former White House communications director Anita Dunn was quoted as saying that, “If it weren’t for the president, this place would be in court for a hostile workplace. . . . Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”
In addition, Christina Romer, former chairwoman of the Council of Economic Advisers, is quoted in the book as saying, “I felt like a piece of meat.”
