Former Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice said in an interview that she fears the #MeToo movement could “turn women into snowflakes,” according to The Daily Caller.
“Let’s not infantilize women,” she told David Axelrod on CNN.

Rice said that she supports the movement but worries that it could end up backfiring on women.
“I think that the movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing. Let’s clear the air about it. I do think we have to be a little bit careful,” she said.
Rice said that she is worried that men will adopt the mindset that “maybe it’s just better not to have women around.”
“I’ve heard a little bit of that. And it, it worries me,” she said.
Rice, who was the first woman admitted to Augusta National Golf Club, said that she has faced some uncomfortable situations as a professional woman, but never faced a quid pro quo or been assaulted.
“I’ve certainly had people suggest that maybe we should just go out — and you know — and situations in which it was somebody more senior than I,” she told Axelrod.
“I’ve never faced…an explicit quid pro quo. I’ve never had anyone do anything that I would consider assault,” she continued.
“But I don’t know a woman alive who hasn’t had somebody say or do something that was inappropriate at best and aggressive at worst.”
