Description

Season 2 - The Assassination of Gianni Versace The scenes in question are featured in episodes 7 and 8. Season 3 - Impeachment This season is about the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal so sexual misconduct is a central theme. S3E1: a woman explains how Bill Clinton sexually harassed her by inviting her to his hotel room, kissing her and asking her to perform oral sex on him. She is visibly distressed while explaining it, and has to do a press conference with male journalists asking details on the scene despite her clearly stating that she would not comment on it (she again appears very distressed). Later, another woman explains that the same man assaulted her (forcingly kissing her). Throughout the episode, it is hinted several times that he is a sexual predator. S3E2: the harassment mentioned in S3E1 is discussed again in this episode, and the victim is shown being instrumentalized about it for political purposes. The relation between Clinton and Lewinsky (featuring a power imbalance) is depicted: the female protagonist is also shown being instrumentalized by another character, who encourages her to pursue this relation. S3E3: the female protagonist dismisses the sexual harassment allegations made by a woman against Bill Clinton (relating to the events in S3E1) several times throughout the episode. S3E4: the nature of the relationship between Clinton and Lewinsky is discussed (the female protagonist denies that it is sexual harassment or power abuse). A man touches a woman's butt as a 'goodbye' without her consent (around 29 minutes in). One of the female protagonist explains that an adult (an authority figure) tried to have sex with her when she was 14 and only stopped when she said 'no'. She also explains that her first romantic and sexual relationship was with a teacher while she was in high school. Incest is briefly mentioned as a joke. S3E7: in the opening scene, a woman who was sexually harrassed by Bill Clinton is in a room where he denies having ever meeting her. She is visibly distressed and leaves the room. This episode demonstrates how Clinton's denial of having a sexual affair with Lewinsky psychologically destroys her. A former high school teacher of Lewinsky, who had an affair with her when she was a teenager publicly slut-shames her. S3E9: in the final scene, someone explains that a woman testified that Clinton raped her. Because she initially said that he did not, this claim is brushed aside and disqualified by all the characters. Throughout this episode, Lewinsky is asked to describe her sexual encounters with Clinton in details twice (the first time in public): she is visibly very distressed. S3E10: during an interview, a woman described how Clinton raped her. A woman who has sexually assaulted by Clinton and instrumentalized politically, is forced to do erotic/nude photos for money: she is shown being visibly distressed by this situation. Descriptions of the sexual encounters between Clinton and Lewinsky are made publicly available: Lewinsky is visibly distressed by that.
