MSNBC legal analyst and former FBI attorney Lisa Page described the delicate balancing act because of how men treat women in America.
Page was the target of abuse from President Donald Trump for her role in investigating his dealings with Russia.
On Saturday, Page highlighted a thread on Twitter with a broken heart emoji.
"Filtering every decision through the lens of safety. But also, to dare not err, to stay valuable in a country that will erase you the second you stumble. The searing shame and crushing weight that follows the inevitable fall from unattainable perfection," Page wrote.
Here is the full thread Page was referencing, posted by the host of the popular podcast "Quinn Cummings Give Bad Advice."
