Women Encouraged to Support #MeToo Movement

June 12th, 2019
saying no, biases

The #MeToo movement drastically increased claims by victims who had previously felt powerless, easily coerced, and even threatened by colleagues. According to a report from NAVEX Global, employee harassment complaints rose 18 percent since 2017. Even more importantly, 41 percent of those claims were immediately substantiated. Though these are commendable statistics, they do not imply that sexual harassment has increased in the workplace. It merely shows that more women feel comfortable speaking out against inequality. A single voice is likely to be ignored. Adding your voice to the growing #MeToo movement, one that can bring change across America, is much more empowering.

If a senior manager has a significant amount of authority over a female employee, she may not feel that she has a choice in the matter. Retaliation, denial of a promotion, and termination are all legitimate concerns. Now is the time for women to report unwanted sexual pressure, derogatory comments, and harassment. Thankfully, as a group, one women’s voice is now bolstered by a critical mass of women who encourage victims to speak up. By bringing justice to those who have wronged them, they also help prevent countless other women from suffering through the same experience.
