The #MeToo movement has put the public spotlight on not just the men who have been accused of sexual misconduct but their spouses as well.
Take the case of former CBS CEO Les Moonves and his wife, Julie Chen-Moonves. Chen-Moonves still works for CBS, as the host of the show "Big Brother." On the show, she was known before as just Julie Chen but recently has been introducing herself with her husband's surname.
A Simmons professor speaks with us about why Chen-Moonves is leaning into her last name and why the narrative may be wrong about the wives of the men accused in the #MeToo movement.
Suzanne Leonard, associate professor at Simmons University. Her latest book is "Wife, Inc.: The Business of Marriage in the Twenty-First Century" and her piece in the Los Angeles Review Of Books is "Fealty, Fortune, and the Wives of #MeToo."
