Who Exploits Whom?

"Hold Please" began when playwright Annie Weisman had some politically incorrect thoughts about the Clinton-Lewinsky affair. The writer believed that Monica Lewinsky virtually blackmailed Bill Clinton into finding her a job. "It's important to set standards to protect the powerless in [boss-intern] relationships," Weisman, 28, says. "But it's not always the person in power who's doing the exploiting. Young women have a powerful trump card when they get into relationships with powerful men. I think many women are wise to that and use it to their advantage."
