Monica Lewinsky joined the "#MeToo" movement started by actress Alyssa Milano who asked Twitter users to respond with that message if they had been subject to unwelcome advances.
Lewinsky, best known for her affair with then-President Bill Clinton while working as a White House intern in the 1990s, posted her tweet on Sunday.
Juanita Broaddrick, who has long accused Clinton of raping her in the 1970s, lashed out at Lewinsky on Thursday for marking herself as a victim of sexual harassment or assault, Fox News reported.
What happened in the '90s with Clinton?
Several women have accused Clinton of sexual misconduct, dating back to his tenure as governor of Arkansas. Clinton has admitted only to having consensual relations with Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers and denied Broaddrick's allegation through a lawyer back in the '90s, Fox News reported. (CNN's chronology breaks down the Clinton-Lewinsky saga.)

In almost back-to-back tweets on Thursday, Broaddrick slammed Lewinsky for her silence more than two decades ago.
Your silence was deafening in the 90's when Kathleen, Paula and I needed your voice. https://t.co/3bhKsM0sLu— Juanita Broaddrick (@Juanita Broaddrick)1508423611.0

Also, in a tweet pinned to the top of Broaddrick's Twitter account, she accused Hillary Clinton of trying to silence her from speaking out about the alleged rape.
