In one of the many plot lines of campaign , GOP candidate — and now president-elect — Donald Trump harassed, insulted and belittled Kelly, usually via Twitter. And the only way forward is for women to get comfortable, throwing some sharp elbows, making waves and taking risks and holding the powerful to account.
