Abby Whelan on Feminism

Do I have any other fellow Scandal lovers out there?  I am continually impressed by this show and the way in which Shonda Rhimes addresses social and political issues in such a captivating way .

One of my all time favorite monologues regarding the double standards of females in power is below… enjoy!

For those of you who don’t watch… a quick recap.  Abby is the White House Press Secretary.  Her boyfriend and ex-boyfriend have both been caught up in a scandal in which they are linked as past partners to a woman who is about to publish an expose on the various sexual escapades she has had with several high profile D.C. men.  Abby decides that she will need to resign her position based on her history with these two men.  When her current boyfriend seems confused by Abby’s decision to resign she explains to him the double standards that she is judged upon.
