The longtime Elle advice columnist accused the president of sexually assaulting her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s in her upcoming book, “What Do We Need Men For?”.

In the book, Carroll details how the alleged encounter — which would fit legally accepted definitions of rape, though Carroll did not use that work herself — affected her mental state.

She adds that she continues to shop at Bergdorf’s, including a recent wedding dress shopping trip with her niece in which “the attack never entered” her head.
