In an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod on Sunday, former U.S. secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she’s worried the #MeToo movement will turn women into snowflakes.

When asked if she’s ever been the victim of sexual harrassment, Rice responded that while she’s never been a victim of sexual assault, people have certainly said inappropriate things to her.

“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,” Rice said.

While aspects of the ongoing #MeToo movement have brought about greater transparency, Rice said, she’s worried it might turn toxic and infantilize women.

“The movement to expose these circumstances is a good thing,” she said. “Let’s clear the air about it. I do think we do have to be a little bit careful. Let’s not turn women into snowflakes, let’s not infantilize women.”

Rice said she’s ultimately worried the viral campaign will cause men to not want women around.

“What I really don’t want to happen is I don’t want it to get to a place where men start to think, ‘Well, maybe it’s just better not to have women around,” she said. “I’ve heard a little bit of that and it worries me.”
