In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement, we are witnessing huge media publicity and scrutiny regarding all forms of sexual harassment.
But instead of talking about what happened to whom, I’d like to discuss the root causes. Can we dig deeper into personality traits that explain why sexual harassment happens?
In this video I break down the three types of men who are most likely to harass women, intentionally or unintentionally. These are:
#1: Men who believe they are superior
#2: Men who misunderstand and misread signals from women
#3: Neanderthals who don’t know (or don’t care) if their behavior is offensive
Please watch the video below:
Change can only happen on a large scale when we challenge the norms that are deeply ingrained in a culture, and then educate society as to why these norms are problematic.
