This Day in History

Paula Jones accused President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment on May 6, 1994, allegations stemming from an incident she claimed occurred in 1991 while Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas. This lawsuit opened a highly publicized legal battle that would eventually lead to broader investigations, culminating in the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998. The Paula Jones case brought increased attention to issues of sexual harassment and power dynamics in the workplace, influencing legal proceedings and public perceptions in the years that followed.
