    Many people we thought we knew and respected will be -- and have been -- caught in the avalanche of substantiated allegations. I think we've only seen the tip of the iceberg, and it's going to get worse before it gets better.


Really, there are likely many cases that we will never hear about. Just like many sorts of epidemiology sorts of studies, things are always more wide spread

    Society needs to undergo this transition and transformation. If those in power thought there would be consequences for their behavior -- if there hadn't been tacit and unspoken permission for this behavior -- it may not have occurred in the first place. Now that these consequences have been laid bare, I hope it will usher in a new era of workplace safety.


I do think that most workplaces have improved over time, although that is just my hunch over time. Does not mean that this sort of thing is not still a problem but I do not think it is as consistently as rampant as before. That said, it still is a problem.


    Quote:
    One thing is clear is that sexual abuse and aggression has no ideological, political or cultural boundaries. The bi-partisan condemnation of this behavior is encouraging, if late -- on both sides of the aisle.


Maybe, in some places legislatures and such still try to pass things that make it harder to come forward with this sort of information.

Really, the biggest part of this, so far, has been that this is unacceptable on a societal level. This is critical for any change. If the activity is found not to be ok than change can happen on a large scale. If not, than it will not. So, that is a positive at least.
