Not all men exploit women—but those who do may be facing a reckoning.
We are witnessing the powerful influence of women as they speak out about sexual assaults and harassment in the workplace and elsewhere. These voices heard in the media give permission for other women to be heard. And the public statements now hold the perpetrators accountable.
This movement highlights the patriarchal influence of our culture that contributes to so many women being victimized while so many victimizers remain unseen and protected. It’s a condition that’s systemic and pervasive. Not all men exploit women, but for those who do, they might be facing a reckoning.
