The curtains have opened and light is shining onto the issue. Women feel more free to open up about what they have suffered, instead of remaining silent. With so many sisters speaking out, women feel that there’s safety in numbers.
The Other Side of the Story
Unfortunately, in the rush of MeToo accusations, we lost sight of the basic principles. The first step towards MeToo solutions is to expose the men who are serial sexual harassers. Many of the accused, such as Harvey Weinstein, are guilty. But that doesn’t mean you can make generalizations that all men commit sexual harassment. By the same token, the MeToo movement was wrongly used by some women to make dishonest sexual assault allegations for personal gain. No one is denying that.
Finding the Solution to Sexual Harassment
In order to find workable MeToo solutions, we need to come together. Honest women and men of good faith need to communicate and share their ideas so that we can find the role of MeToo in today’s business world. We need input from everyone to design protocols that will get rid of sexual harassment for good.
One person can do their best to create practical and useful MeToo solutions, but a variety of ideas and viewpoints are necessary—as long as they are offered in a respectful and constructive way. Here is a short video I recorded to expound more on this topic.
Together, we can find the role of MeToo in bringing real equality to our world.
