Today, Dominique Strauss-Kahn settled in the New York Supreme Court on confidential terms the civil suit filed by his alleged sexual victim Nafissatou Diallo. She won. The reality that she was not likable, at least in the eyes of many, has proved to be irrelevant. Few cottoned to her look and highly coached presentation on the morning talk shows.
Money to most of us and especially to Diallo is very important. She can now do what she wants. She saw this through. In that way, she's one of America's success stories.
Incidentally more women are choosing to be respected versus liked. Helen Brown, who created COSMO, learned that lesson early in the game.
